Using this recipe from Blue Ridge Baker, and my brand new present to myself of a Wilton silicon bite size brownie pan, I gave honest-to-goodness candy making a shot. But, of course, I had to give the recipe my own little tweaks. In my improvised double boiler I melted a combination of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 60% cocoa chips. (I love deep, dark chocolate!) And, with us being a two peanut butter family (Hubby is crunchy, I am smooth), I knew I had to make some with each. And that meant I would need to do something to differentiate between the two... (Ah, if only all of life's problems were so complex...)Peanuts = crunchy... no big surprise!
I am quite pleased with how things turned out. Both in terms of the taste and the way the candy came out of the silicon pan. I'm might have to invest in some more of those one day... And since both chocolate and peanut butter are things we seem to always have in the kitchen, it looks like these are going to be added to the regular dessert menu!
