To me, they are kind of like those nights when my sister and I were up late, going to watch something on television because our parents were out, were already in pj's, and wanted to concoct something to eat. It didn't happen all that often, but it did happen now and then.
What I like, is the fact that you can use less ingredients. But, it also, in some cases, points out the need to have some chocolate on hand, and some peanut butter!
We'll start with:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy
⦁ 1 pound white candy coating, coarsely chopped
⦁ 1-1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
⦁ 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
⦁ In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Stir in peanut butter; thinly spread onto a waxed paper-lined ⦁ baking sheet.
⦁ In another microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Drizzle over candy coating mixture; cut through mixture with a knife to swirl the chocolate. Chill until firm.
⦁ Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
