Slow Cooker Christmas Clusters Recipe

Slow Cooker Christmas Clusters Recipe
Don't think you have time to whip up Christmas Treats? Think again! You can still make these Slow Cooker Christmas Clusters they are no-bake and can be made in 30 minutes or less. The white chocolate coating is conveniently melted in a slow cooker. Modern slow cookers cook at a higher temperature than previous versions, so setting a newer slow cooker to the warm setting is sufficient to melt the coating without scorching it. It’s always nice to know that you can do other things while your chocolate is melting without being watched.

Although they will most likely be devoured before the end of the holidays, these clusters keep for months in an airtight container. Everyone likes the combination of sweet and salty with white chocolate coating, and these are quick and easy; it’s almost effortless to add these to your holiday repertoire.

Incidentally, these are great for serving year round; just vary the sprinkles to match whichever holiday you're making them for.
