    Beat me to it. I started gathering ingredients and tools to fool around with these. Candy funnel was on sale a Joanns for $2. You can get everything to make these there minus the PB. These are a dead ringer for a simplified "buckeye". Mom's had the rice crispies but prefer without. Thanks for posting Bear!

    Great !!
    Mrs Bear gets all her candy making stuff from Joanne's too.
    I don't usually mention it, because I don't know how wide spread Joanne's stores are.

    Looks Great, Duke!!
    Mrs Bear fills ours too full---Makes them harder to unwrap!!
    I like Yours!

    Ours turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!
     
  9. Well, first batch is gone....now the wife has decided that I need to make a few more batches this weekend. She's thinking that I need to try some with white chocolate and mint (plain and with cocoa puffs), and another batch of the peanut butter. She also wants me to make a few in normal sized cup cake tins so she can run the larger ones through a cheese grater and mix it in with her homemade ice cream as she's making it. I have her convinced that this recipe is difficult and time consuming but I will gladly make them for her.... I'll get my new smoker yet.....

    Made a batch last night , first time . Real good ,, thanks again for another new interest !
     
  20. I just wanted to say that I have been making these for family functions since I first found this and they are usually inhaled within minutes.

    I have also been breaking them into smaller pieces, then mixing them into some fresh made ice cream and caramel sauce. My wife calls it the "most evil ice cream ever" as she can barely restrain herself from eating the whole batch.
