Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole almonds
  • 1 12 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate broken up
  • 8 oz dried cherries cut up if large
  • 10 oz white candy coating -OR- almond bark

Instructions

  • Place almonds in the bottom of a 3.5-4 quart slow cooker.
  • If using almond bark, cut it up in small chunks about 1-inch.
  • Layer the chocolate chips, baking chocolate, cherries and candy coating, having the candy coating on top.
  • Place a layer of paper towels on top of the crock and secure them with the lid.
  • Cook on low ONLY for 1-1.5 hours. Candy will still appear whole, but if you stir it like in the photo in the post, and everything blends well, it's ready.
  • Drop chocolate mixture into paper bonbon cups (about 1.5-inches diameter at bottom). I got 45 bonbon cups out of this recipe.
