This a keeper! Excellent seller for the holiday bake sales. A Big THANKS for this one.
OK. I admit to not being the most adept chef on the face of the planet. However, I tried this twice (once with help from the g/f) and both times it didn't work at all. I heeded CaymanDesigns warning and made sure not to overcook the mixture, but whenever I added the rest of the ingredients it would become crumby. I would have to add a ton of melted chocolate just to keep them together and coming out of the fridge they are hard as rocks. I will try to blame this on my own lack of experience, but I doubt we are going to try to make them again.
I can't imagine giving these anything but a five. The sweet and salty combination is just perfect. I would make these all the time but I think that would just cancel out all the time I have been spending at the gym:(.
This recipe totally flopped for me. After 5 minutes I didn't feel the syrup was what I would call "thickened" so I boiled it for several more minutes until it was. I guess it was too much though because as soon as I put the peanut butter in it started setting up (think instant concrete!). I tried to mix the remaining ingredients in but it was pretty much impossible. I ended up with a large bowl of some very tasty crumb topping! LOL! So whatever you do, don't boil it more than 5 minutes or you might end up with a lot of ice cream topping like I did. ;o)
