In days gone bye, horse-drawn carts in the streets of New Orleans sold these wonderful, aromatic rice cakes. They have never been widely available in restaurants. They make a great breakfast or snack. These sweets were very popular.
This candy is a must for gifts, parties, or special occasions, especially if your time is limited.
NOTE: The butterscotch chips will NOT melt. When they are soft, they look shiney. Do not overcook, as the chocolate will burn.
You may use more peanuts if desired. I usually throw in more to make sure the last pieces have some nuts in them.
This is a real Texas peach cobbler with an abundance of juicy fruit and a sweet, biscuit-like batter topping that is crunchy on the surface and doughy inside. This recipe comes from Cheryl and Bill Jamison.
