Peanut chews are sweet table staples at pretty much any event, a good recipe to keep on hand (or memorize, you’ll be making them so often). They can be made gluten-free as well, so everyone can enjoy them. The decorative chocolate technique suggested here is simple to execute and looks very pretty.

Ingredients (8)

Fancy Chocolate Peanut Chews

Decorating Variation 1

Decorating Variation 2

Start Cooking

Prepare the Fancy Chocolate Peanut Chews

  1. In an eight-quart saucepan, over low heat, bring to a boil honey, peanut butter and chocolate. Cook until smooth and liquefied. (This can also be done in the microwave in short intervals.)

  2. Remove from flame. Add rice crispies and coat with peanut butter mixture.

  3. Spread onto cookie sheet. Cool.

  4. Decorate as desired (see suggestions below) and cut into small squares or triangles.

To Decorate (Variation 1)

  1. Melt 15 ounces baking chocolate and spread over cold peanut chews. With a fork make designs vertically and horizontally.

To Decorate (Variation 2)

  1. Melt white chocolate and peanut butter (this can be done in the microwave or on the stove).

  2. Simultaneously, in a second pot or bowl, melt baking chocolate.

  3. Spread peanut chocolate over cooled peanut chews. While still hot, drip baking chocolate in thin straight lines, one-and-a-half inches apart, vertically across the whole cookie sheet.

  4. Immediately take a knife and pull on the chocolate lines horizontally. The two chocolates will now combine to form a circular - leaf pattern.

  5. Cut into squares or triangles, or use a round cookie cutter to cut into circles.

Note:

This is a very pretty decorative touch that works beautifully on cakes and miniatures.

    I would wait 30 min for the peanut chews to still be firm but not freezing. Then you should be able to create the design.
