Pooh to January Diets!
Usually I blog recipes that are a little quirky, always simple and tasty and full of goodness. Today I am fed up with drab January and just crave something yummy and naughty to eat. I remember Helen from and Vanstone raving about Reece Chocolate and Peanut Butter things and thought that sounded suitably naughty for my needs today. I raided the cupboards and created this recipe; try it if you dare!
Peanut & Chocolate Crunch Farm Cookies
I'll say them quickly and they might sound more healthy?
125g butter or good baking margarine like Clover
125g crunchy peanut butter
125g granulated sugar
275g SR flour
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Beat all ingredients in a food mixer until they begin to form a dough.
Roll into large walnut sized balls and place on a greased oven tray
Cook at 180degrees for aproximately 12 minutes till golden brown
Leave to cool before loosening from the tin; they can crumble if not cooled properly.
Melt Chocolate in a bowl over hot water or in the microwave being careful not to boil. I found 1 minute on high in the microwave, then a stir then 20 seconds, leave for 30 seconds then stir was perfect.
Dip the biscuits into the chocolate and then into white chocolate chips.
Leave to set.
These really are so easy they would be a lovely one to do with the children. A definite thumbs up in our house!
