This time of year, I’m all about sweets. If I’m going to someone’s house, I’m bringing dessert. But, this time of year, I’m also super busy. So I really love this slow cooker candy recipe. It’s simple, requires little effort, and tastes incredible.

I wanted to change up the crunch factor when I was making it last weekend, so I added Golden Crisps cereal. What a great idea! Everyone I shared the slow cooker candy with loved it, so I’m getting ready to make a new batch (because this one is completely gone!).

The chocolate should be completely melted by then, but, if it’s not, leave it a little longer and keep checking on it. Stir to combine the chocolates.

Then, turn off the slow cooker, add in the cereal, and stir until everything is combined.
