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!
