A wonderful and different treat! Bugles are filled with peanut butter and dipped in chocolate. Yum! Recipe courtesy of Country Woman Christmas 2004
- 1 1⁄2 cups creamy peanut butter (room temperature)
- 6 cups Bugles original flavor snacks
- 12 ounces milk chocolate confectionary coating (or see note below for substitute for milk chocolate)
- Fill plastic food bag with peanut butter.
- Cut small hole in corner of bag.
- Twist open end of bag tight and carefully pipe the peanut butter into the Bugles.
- Do not overfill or the filling will leak out.
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy coating at 70% power for 1 1/ 2 minutes. Stir.
- Heat 1 to 1 1/2 minutes longer or until melted; stir until smooth.
- Chocolate can also be melted in the top of a double boiler.
- Dip the peanut butter filled end of each Bugle halfway into the chocolate coating.
- Place on waxed paper to dry.
- Note: You can also use chocolate chips melted with 2 teaspoons of shortening to dip the bugles. If chocolate needs rewarming while dipping, place in microwave for a few seconds til smooth.
I don't know how much I made, but it was about a half bag of Bugles. A lot of the Bugles were closed too much at the opening to get any peanut butter in them. Keep that in mind, if you want to make a lot; you will need more than one bag of Bugles. These tasted good and my kids really enjoyed dipping them in chocolate and then eating them when they were ready. Their friends really liked them as well. I used my Pampered Chef's Easy Accent Decorator to pipe in the peanut butter. This made it easy (easier than a plastic food bag in my opinion), and there wasn't any waste of peanut butter either. I will probably make these again, but not often as it does take too much time trying to find the Bugles with large openings and filling them with peanut butter. Thanks for another different recipe.
I can't make these anymore because I eat them all! They are that good.
Can not believe I didn't rate these!!! I am browsing through my cookbooks looking for something to make with the kids and realized I have never rated these! We have made these the past two Christmas' and everyone loved them. So easy and tasty! We usually dip half into sprinkles for a colorful addition.
