These sticky, chewy candies are positively addictive. They'll keep, covered in the refrigerator, for 1 week. They remind me of a candy I had, growing up in Canada, called 'eatmores' or something like that (a LONG time ago). If anyone remembers the name of this candy/confection, I'd love to know it. From the LCBO magazine.
- unsalted butter, for greasing pan
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 3⁄4 cup smooth natural-style peanut butter
- 10 ounces milk chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 1⁄2 cups salted peanuts (skinless)
- Butter a large baking dish.
- In a medium saucepan, combine the corn syrup, peanut butter and chocolate chips.
- Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
- Continue stirring constantly while boiling for 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract, salt, oats and peanuts.
- Scrape mixture into buttered baking dish.
- When cool enough to handle, butter your hands and press mixture evenly into baking dish.
- Refrigerate 3 hours.
- Let sit at room temperature for 25 minutes.
- Heat a sharp knife by dipping it in a tall container filled with hot water and use it to cut peanut chews into squares.
evelyn, i just might need to avoid your recipes, these ARE addicting :) Loved them. And shouldnt be eating them lol.
I haven't made this yet, so I probably shouldn't rate the recipe, but it sure sounds good! I just wanted to tell Evelyn/Athens that the candy she's thinking about is called EatMore - my fiance really likes that candy bar and it is still available in stores in Canada. I'll have to try making this treat for him - I'm sure he'll enjoy it. Thanks for posting.
