This recipe came from a very sweet woman I know. My family absolutely loves these little candies and they could hardly be easier. The hardest part is spooning the candy on to the paper to cool, that and not eating them all be for they set. Please note only use DRY utensils when making chocolates, water can ruin your candies. You may need to put the candy in to the fridge for a little while to get it to set if it is very warm in your house the day that you make them. For example, last time I made them I was also baking bread that day, the kitchen was too warm for the candies so I had to very carefully cut my parchment to manageable sizes so that my candy could be placed in the fridge. If it is more than 72 in your kitchen you may want to plan on chilling them in the fridge and that means making sure you can safetly make it from your crock pot to your fridge or a really cool place in your house without dropping all your goodies on the floor. I use what I consider to be an average sized family crockpot for my candy I believe it holds about 3 quarts. I have successfully halved the recipe and used a smaller crock pot, the candy will only take around 1 hour and 45 minutes for the half batch to melt.
Chop German chocolate and vanilla bark in to small pieces so that they will melt more quickly.
Layer ingredients in crock pot as listed above.
Cook on low for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
DO NOT OPEN THE LID! Candy may not appear to be melting, but when you stir it at the end of the 2 hours and 15 minutes it will be.
Be sure to use a VERY DRY spoon to vigorously stir the candy when the time is up. Even a drop of water can ruin the batch.
Spoon combined candy on to wax or parchment paper with a teaspoon to cool.
Once set put finished candies in to airtight containers for storage, if they last that long.
Makes approximately 200 pieces.
