Toothsome Tuesday

OK, I thought up a recipe today, you can hate me later, trust me you will.

I have a friend with a birthday today and funds are on the tightish side, what to do? Ahh, the gift delish.

I'm not sure of a good name for these delectable little treats, You Can Hate Me Later Bars, M&M Mars Beware, Nutty Sexy Clusters, or Dang Women These are Amazing Just Like Yous? That last one has a ring to it, don't you think?

1 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar

Mix in largish saucepan bring to a boil. Stir and boil just until sugar is completely melted, about 2 1/2 minutes, be sure to scrape down sides.


1 cup peanut butter
2 1/2 cups roasted salted peanuts

Stir well, drop by tablespoons full, onto lightly greased cookie sheet.

In microwave melt 1 bag milk chocolate chips. drop by generous teaspoons full onto nut clusters, spread a bit then cool till chocolate is set.

These are seriously good, scary good, farewell Snickers and Reece's good, hide them from the kids good, don't share the recipe with your bloggy friends so that you can have an awesome giveaway and everyone will think you are the coolest good. See how much I love you people.

If you're re-gifting the box you put them into for your friend whose birthday is today, and she just possibly, gave you this box you might want to include a label like this.

Ingredients: SUGAR, CoRnSyRuP, PeanuT ButtEr, PEAnuts, CHOcoLATE, LoVE, BesT WisHes.

Warning: This product contains NUTs and should only be eaten by nUts. It was manufactured in a facility where it definitely came into contact with a nuT.

You could also include a card like this just in case the box was heart shaped and you might have got it from the birthday girl just last Saturday. What? It was a great box!

Dear Birthday Girl,
At first glance this may look like a left over Valentines gift bought cheap at an after Valentines sale, or a re-gifted heart shaped box filled with homemade treats; but, before you judge, taste one...I'm waiting...Mmmm who gives the best birthday gifts ever? Happy Freakin' Birthday!

I guess I should be happy you didn't post this recipe last week when I was off sugar...

Mary Ann said...

You are bad. Very, very, bad. It would have been bad enough without the pictures - since as it was you had me at "peanut butter".

(And my birthday is in June...just in case you wanted to make me something...)

Mummy McTavish said...

Ohh, yummy.

Since you seem to like things made with peanut butter you might like these ones...

1 cup sugar (I do half/half brown and raw)
1 egg

Yes, really, NO FLOUR.

Mix it all up, spoonfulls on a tray, bake moderate for 5-10 minutes, let cool, gobble them up before any kids find them.

These look so good! Are you trying to get me to pack on the pounds?! Maybe I should eat them on the treadmill... Just a thought

Looks yummy!! I just may have to try those for a get together this weekend. But wait, maybe I shouldn't. . . I might like them and then they would never make it to the get together. LOL

I feel extra exercise coming on. . .

Am I missing something, who's birthday is it???
