This is the PERFECT recipe to do with your kids...even preschoolers. I measured everything out, and Ryder was absolutely thrilled to pour it in for me and mix it all up.
As soon as I saw this Crock Pot Salty Sweet, I knew I was going to use Sir Hamilton (my Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker). Not only is it reliable and easy to clean, with Ryder wanting to watch this recipe like a hawk, I love that the outside is insulated, limiting the parts that he would get burned by if his curious little fingers reached out. Another reason Sir Hamilton was perfect for this is that at the end you have to pick up your insert and pour the mixture out onto a lined cookie sheet. With Sir Hamilton's light insert, I didn't have to worry about my bad wrists hurting me when I held it with one hand. Can you tell I love this crock pot?
The original recipe called for cooking on high for one hour to one and a half hours. I have used Sir Hamilton for this type of recipe before, (I use him all the time when I make up some Slow Cooker Bunch of Crunch Candy), so I knew that I needed to give it a good stir after 10-15 minutes and then it would probably be done around 30 minutes. So, if you do not know how your crock pot does with melting chocolate, keep a close eye on it. It could range anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. It is no fun when your chocolate seizes up on you...not that I would know from experience or anything. ;)
