Delight in the festive spirit while staying on track with your wellness goals with this Weight Watchers-friendly Crockpot Christmas Crack. This wholesome twist on a holiday favorite combines the rich flavors of whole wheat or multi-grain cereal squares, pretzels, and unsalted dry roasted peanuts, creating a satisfying and crunchy base for the delightful treat.

The magic unfolds in the slow cooker as the cereal, pretzels, and peanuts mingle with a luscious caramel mixture. Crafted with light brown sugar, unsalted butter, and a touch of light corn syrup, the caramel bathes the dry ingredients, creating a sweet and savory medley. Infused with vanilla extract, baking soda, and a pinch of salt, the caramel adds an extra layer of depth to the mix.

The slow-cooking process allows the flavors to meld and intensify, creating a delectable concoction. Once the mixture is perfectly caramelized, it’s transferred to a crockpot, where it continues to evolve into a scrumptious holiday delight.

To elevate the experience, a velvety layer of dark chocolate drapes over the crunchy goodness, adding a touch of indulgence. Melted to perfection, the chocolate not only provides a luxurious coating but also complements the savory-sweet notes of the caramel.

As the Crockpot Christmas Crack cools and the chocolate sets, break it into irresistible pieces, ready to be shared and savored during holiday gatherings or as a special treat. With approximately 5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints per serving, this delightful creation proves that you can enjoy the holiday season without compromising on your wellness journey. Embrace the joy of guilt-free indulgence and savor the festive flavors captured in every delicious bite.
