We have the perfect recipe for all of our chocolate lovers: Crockpot Candy! It may not be what comes to your mind when you think of candy, but you'll keep eating one after the other.
Think of a nut goody; the butterscotch chips in this recipe truly make it. The large variety of chocolate helps to create the perfect and easy candy. It is just chopping some chocolate, throwing it in a crockpot, and scooping it out. Very easy and very delicious.
Then there are the spices. Cinnamon brings warmth to the candy, and chili powder can add flavor. What do I mean by flavor? The chili powder doesn't make the candy spicy; it opens up your taste buds. Adding chili powder to your dish, even just a slight amount, will open up your taste bud receptors and bring out the other flavors of your dish.
You may have drunk Mexican hot chocolate with chili powder. The hot chocolate isn't necessarily spicy; the chili powder is just there to enhance the drink's flavor.
This simple recipe is always a holiday favorite at family gatherings; it's easy to make and simple and easy snacking food. No fork and knife are required; it's a nice little dessert before bed.
But the fun doesn't stop there; experiment with your favorite chocolate, add dark chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, and infuse some mint. You could make so many different modifications, but I assure you this recipe is absolutely perfect.
So, without further due, let's get cooking!
