psst. Tomorrow's Valentine's Day. I know, I can't believe it either. You still have time. Lots of time. In fact, you can make 4-5 whole entire batches of CrockPot Rocky Road Candy between now and tomorrow because it is so incredibly easy and it only takes 1 hr to do each batch.
Melting chocolate in the crockpot is fool-proof.
Unless you are truly a fool. Then you might be out of luck.
But for us ordinary folk who might be chocolate-melting impaired, nothing can beat melting chocolate in the crockpot.
--bag of chocolate chips
--bag of mini marshmallows
--bag of chopped walnuts
--pour whole bag of chocolate chips into stoneware
--turn on high, set timer for 30 minutes to check
--stir chocolate after 30 min, re-set timer 15-30 minutes as needed.
prepare two cookie sheets with Release foil.
when chocolate is all melty, stir in a bunch of marshmallows. I didn't measure how many I dumped in, but I like a lot of marshmallows. I used at least half the bag. Mix with a big spoon and add chopped walnuts (or whatever nuts you prefer).
Remove stoneware from heating element.
Use two spoons and drop mounds of chocolate-marshmallow-nut gooeyness onto the Release foil.
Place cookie sheets into the refrigerator to cool and harden.
Once cool, you can place the candy into those cute little cellophane bags and tie with a pretty ribbon.
Or you can fill your robe pockets and go eat them all in the closet.
Happy almost-Valentine's Day!
