Okay people you can’t get any easier than throwing some chocolate and nuts into a slow cooker to make candy.
These slow cooker pistachio nut and sour cherry chocolates are so easy to make. Your sweetheart doesn’t have to know you used the slow cooker. 🙂
Everyone loves combining sweet and salty, but this candy also adds sour! So delicious and addicting. Make in heart shaped molds or simply use Valentine’s Day cupcake liners.
This tin really adds to giving the gift of chocolate. I found this cute tin in the dollar section at Target.
