My husband brought home a bag of candy corn a few days ago.
I like candy corn a little. I really really like them mixed with peanuts.
I don't have peanuts.
I do have peanut butter.
So I made these:
I cannot. stop. eating. them.
They are puffy and delicious. I pressed a single candy corn into each of them before baking, which totally melted the candy corn...but it left a sticky impression in which I placed another candy corn when I took them out of the oven. Candy corn, candy corn, candy corn.
If you need a little peanutliciousness in your life here's the recipe:
1 cup peanut butter
1 stick of butter, melted, then cooled
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
(mixed all together, then add...)
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
nice pinch of salt
Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet, press in a candy corn. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 12-15 minutes...take them out before they're completely done (so they're not crispy) and press in another candy corn.
