The classic recipes for buckeyes I’ve found on the web use up to twice the amount of powdered sugar (yes, 6 cups) and two full sticks of butter for the same amount of peanut butter. This variation is less aggressively sweet, with a little tang from cream cheese and warm flavors from the graham crumbs. The only thing I wished it had was salt — perhaps a quarter teaspoon? Maybe a half teaspoon of something light and flaky? I think that salt really brings out the flavor in a peanut butter candy (try just the peanut butter portion of a Reese’s peanut butter cup alone if you don’t believe me), especially against a chocolate coating.
This is a yummy candy that I make each year to put in amongst (if that is a word) my cookies on the trays. It came from a Better Homes & Garden Candy Cookbook back in the '60s. It is one that is easy to make and comes out great every time. It is very tasty and has a great crunch if you are sure to bring it to the hard crack stage.
I bought a bottle of marshmallow Fluff and went looking for recipes online. I looked on their website for recipe ideas, and came across this one for peanut butter fudge. It is awesome and definitely worth a try!
This log looks amazing cut into slices. Choose a good quality chocolate for this recipe. I use this recipe sometimes as a christmas log. Some amaretti biscuits are naturally gluten free because they are made with apricot kernels, sugar and egg whites so this can easily become a wheat free recipe.
With so few ingredients, this is a lovely treat that doesn't involve going to the store and spending a fortune there.
In between chilling times, you have to work quite quickly with these truffles- I wanted the filling to be soft and creamy so it does begin to melt around the edges if it's in your hands for too long.
It is important to use white chocolate chips to dip the truffles in. The chips are designed to melt at a higher temperature so the truffle doesn't melt in your hands as you are eating it!
Cook time is chill time.
Goetze's Bull's Eye caramels are delicious but I haven't eaten one since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease since they contain wheat. I missed them so I started searching for a copycat recipe. I couldn't find one, so I combined a caramel recipe and a cream recipe. The resulting caramels are a lot creamier than authentic Bull's Eyes, but I think are better for it. You'll want a helper for the final stage; it took me around 2.5 hours.
This is a simple recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens magazine. It's simple enough for kids to make, tastes good and is vegan to boot! I have made it as written but prefer it with some chocolate covering, whether truffle, chocolate flakes or dipped in melted chocolate.
I bet you have a can of cranberry sauce in your pantry! This is a great way to use it. Make these flavorful truffles that are and tender and so good. Great for the holidays or anytime.
Try adding some very finely minced candied ginger for a nice kick.
Can be frozen and brought to room temperature, Re-coat with cocoa and serve.
If you like a smooth creamy luxurious fudge, not at all sugary or hard, and one that is easy to cut into portions without crumbling, then this is the one. Definitely not part of a daily diet. Make for special occasions only.
