Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s Sweet Treat Tuesday and I thought I’d show you what I made over the weekend for my mother-in-law’s birthday party.
She’s not a big fan of chocolate (yeah, do you believe it?), so I made her a wonderful french vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting, which she loves. I just knew the rest of the family would be looking for something chocolate, so I made this delicious chocolate peanut candy for them. It was actually a very nice compliment to the vanilla cake.
You’ll love it. It comes together pretty quickly, and it only calls for 4 ingredients: roasted salted peanuts; chocolate chips; Baker’s chocolate and vanilla almond bark.
To begin, empty a 16 oz. jar of Dry Roasted Peanuts in a large bowl.
You’ll need a double-boiler to melt the chocolate so it doesn’t burn. The chocolate melts pretty quickly.
(I use 2 pans. I fill the bottom one with water deep enough so that the top pan just sits on it.)
I begin by melting the almond bark.
Next add the chocolates and stir constantly until all mixed together.
Pour melted chocolate over peanuts.
Mix chocolate and peanuts together quickly.
I used cupcake liners to put the chocolate in.
Depending on how large you want your pieces to be, you can use either the regular cupcake liners or the small candy ones. I had the regular ones on hand and I like the colors too.
A small ice cream scoop makes the perfect portion.
Makes a nice Easter treat too. Enjoy!
