I recently made chocolates for my husband's co-workers and thought I'd share with y'all. They turned out soooo yummy.
I started with Mindy's recipe for Chocolate Peanut Bliss: click here. But I doctored it up, mainly to make it stretch further.
1 pack vanilla almond bark
1 pack chocolate almond bark
1 pack (4 oz) Baker's German Sweet Baking Bar (I'm convinced this is the secret ingredient making it so yummy)
1 bag semi-sweet chips (12 oz)
1 bag butterscotch chips (12 oz I think)
32 oz. dry roasted peanuts
½ of a large bag Chow mein noodles
Chop the chocolate bark and bar. This was taking me forever, so I just started digging the tip of the knife into the chocolate to break it up in chunks.
Toss all the chocolate into the Crock Pot. I turned it on high to start the warming but then turned it down to low.
While the chocolate melted (stirring occasionally), I gathered the other ingredients along with my silicone baking sheets and parchment paper.
When the chocolate was melted, I used a whisk to smooth it out (some of the chips didn't want to melt really well).
Once smooth, stir in the nuts and noodles. Then spoon onto the paper/silicone mats and let sit until hardened. This step took a couple of hours, so be sure to leave time--especially if you're planning to pack them up as a gift.
These are definitely something kids can help make. I guarantee everyone will love them!
Now, to share some funnies that I saw at Cracker Barrel the other night. These are so ME! :)
HAHAHA!!! I love that last one. It's my new motto to my children. :)
Happy Christmas preparation, everyone! I hope you enjoy the time with friends and family. And also remember the Reason for this season.
