Notes

Tip: After adding the clusters to the parchment paper, you can top with red, white, and green sprinkles to add Christmas colors. Do this before the candy clusters cool. 
Crock-pot candy can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months. It is best to align the container with wax paper to prevent the candy from freezing onto the container.
