Let’s face it, making holiday treats can get messy. Between the pretzel rods strewn about your countertop or the saucepans filled with different melting chocolates on your stovetop, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Enter the slow cooker hack of your holiday treat-filled dreams.
By creating a steam bath for your chocolate in your slow cooker, decorating holiday treats has never been easier! Place heat-safe jars filled with your choice of chocolate inside your slow cooker. Add water, about two inches deep. Cover and heat on low until chocolate is melted, about 1 hour depending on your appliance. Once your chocolate is melted, it’s time to decorate!
This timesaving hack will put the fun back into your holiday decorating, especially with delicious recipes like our Better Than Sex Chex Mix
and our Sweet and Salty Dipped Pretzels
. We also love Santa-approved, chocolate-dipped Oreos™ sprinkled with crushed peppermints. Whether you’re making big-batch gifts or treats for a Christmas party, don’t let melting chocolate slow you down!
