I swear, this baby just gets sweeter as the days go by.
Do I sound like a doting grandma, or what!
Went to see our little guy today.
He becomes more animated each time I see him.
Can you believe it, he will sleep
10-12 hours at night now.
I say, what a good baby, lol, but then
I am a bit biased.
I got a bit ambitious today.
We had this large can of mixed nuts in the cupboard.
All the cashews, pecans, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts
and almonds had been picked out.
Just peanuts were left and so to get them eaten up
I bought some of this:
I think you get the picture. Throw some
chocolate on it and watch it disappear, lol.
There are several ways to melt almond bark,
you can microwave it, melt it in a pan on the
stove top, or I chose to use a double boiler.
There was no fear of scorching it then.
On med-high heat it took about 10-15 minutes
to get it melted down where I wanted it.
I threw in the salted peanuts (about 3 cups)
and stirred until they were well coated.
It's gonna look like this. Yummy!
Then I dropped the candy by the
tablespoon onto wax paper.
It took about an hour for the
chocolate to cool and harden.
My husband loves chocolate covered peanuts.
He was napping when I was busy in the kitchen.
I put them in a Tupperware container
and later handed it to him.
He didn't believe I had made them
till I showed him the photos on my camera.
He said they were really good,
(I know, I ate about 4, or was it 5, before he even got his
hands on them. I had no choice,
they just wouldn't all fit in that container, lol) )
