Like heroin to an addict

There's a good reason they call it "Satan's Candy"

Because you're doomed to the very depths of hell when you take that first bite.

I know it's not for everyone, but if you're at all attracted by the whole sweet/salty have to try this candy.

The original recipe is
  • here

  • While it sounded incredible, I just couldn't see using anything but a really good Kosher or sea salt. So, in true Pammy-fashion, I tweaked the recipe just the teeniest bit...and then made a double batch.

    Satan's Candy

    2 bags bittersweet...not semi-sweet...chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips)

    2 bags white chocolate chips (I used Nestle Premium White Chocolate Chips)

    2 cup creamy peanut butter (Plain, ole Jif works fine)

    Kosher or sea salt

    Melt the white chocolate chips in a large heat-proof glass bowl, immersed in a dutch oven filled with 2-3 inches of water. Or use a damn double-boiler if you have one. I improvised.

    Stir until smooth. Evenly spread in a thin layer over a large foil-lined cookie sheet and set aside. In the same bowl, melt the bittersweet chocolate chips, stir until smooth, then stir in the peanut butter plus 2 tsp salt.

    When the chocolate and peanut butter are completely mixed and melted, gently spread peanut butter mixture over the white chocolate. Sprinkle the top with more Kosher salt and refrigerate until set. Cut or break into pieces and don't blame me if you gain 5 pounds over the holidays.

    Now, the original recipe added (before sprinkling the top with salt), "Marble with a fork so the white and dark chocolate is attractively swirled."

    Good luck with that.

    I tried it...and wound up just kind of mushing it all together...not so attractively. I think it would have probably worked had I let the chocolate/peanut butter mixture set just a bit before trying to swirl it.

    At any rate, it's easy as pie...but far, far more addicting.

    Merry Chrismoose!

    Sounds pretty yummy! We have a family favorite called church windows that sounds equally tasty and simple. Not sure of the exacts but it involves melting semi-sweet chips in a pan, adding miniature multi-colored marshmallows at the last minute, pouring it out onto waxed paper and then rolling the paper into a cylinder. Once everything cools, it gets sliced giving the effect of stained glass windows. Delicious and seriously belt expanding and highly recommended.
