(Bear's Favorite Candy!!)
Well, it's that time of year again!!
These things are AWESOME !!! My only Candy Weakness!!
If you like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, you will love these!!
All my life my favorite candy had been Reese's “Peanut Butter Cups”, but then a Candy company opened up near where I used to live. They had an little outlet store attached to their big plant, and they sold these things called “Meltaways”. They were good, but they used dark chocolate, and I never was a Dark Chocolate fan. Then a few years ago I did some searching, and came up with a few recipes for “Meltaways”. We did some experimenting with the various recipes, and came up with our own recipe.
Mrs Bear makes these at Christmas, and just about everyone who has eaten any, has asked for the recipe.
We made some yesterday, and I took some pics & wrote it up “Bear Step by Step” style. They are really easy to make!!!
This is All You Need:
1------10 ounce bag of Milk Chocolate Melting Wafers.
1------10 ounce bag of White Chocolate Melting Wafers.
1------16 ounce jar of “Creamy” Peanut Butter.
Mini Paper Liners (at least 70---get 100).
Large Zipper Bag (or better yet---A Candy Making Funnel).
#1----Pour all the wafers and the Peanut Butter into a microwave safe bowl.
#2----Microwave on High for 2 minute intervals until all ingredients are melted.
#3----Stir well with a wooden spoon, until completely combined & smooth.
#4----Pour mixture into heavy zip top bag, close & cut one corner off.
(Better yet get an “Easy-pour Candy Making Funnel”)
#5----Place Mini Paper Baking Cups on a tray.
#6----Squeeze Chocolate mixture into each cup, until about ¾ full.
#7----Place tray into Fridge until set.
#8----Remove from Fridge & enjoy. Store in containers with lids.
Note: I like to keep mine in Fridge. No need to go in Freezer like my Reese's PB Cups.
You can also keep them out, but they will get soft, just like any chocolate candy.
However they hold up well being at room temp' during the length of time of a party.
Let me know how you like these!
Other than Prime Rib, Bacon, and a few other smoked goodies, these are my biggest weakness.
