Bun Candy

Hi Nancy, I wish I had posted this before Christmas but I just found the recipe while going through all of them and sorting out. Anyway, this is really good and makes a lot!

Bun Candy

1 pkg. (12 oz.) Chocolate Chips
1 pkg. (12 oz.) Butterscotch Chips
1 jar (18 oz.) Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Cup Butter or Margarine (regular stick not tub)
2/3 Cup Milk
1 pkg. (3 & 1/2 oz.) Vanilla Pudding Mix (not instant)
2 lbs. Powdered Sugar
1 lb. Dry Roasted Peanuts

Melt both kinds of chips and the peanut butter a microwave safe bowl on high in the microwave for a few minutes but be careful and don’t overheat. The chips will not lose their shape and you won’t
think they are melted but if you stir them you will see that they are melting. Check after each minute in the microwave and stir until well blended. Spread half of the mixture in a buttered 10”x 15” jellyroll pan and chill in the refrigerator or freezer. Heat butter, milk and pudding mix over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until bubbly and cook for one minute. The mixture will look like something curdled or like the pudding is just”frying” in the butter but that is o.k. Add the powdered sugar (sifted if you prefer) and beat in well. Spread over the chocolate mixture in the pan and chill. When the vanilla layer is firm, add the peanuts to the remaining chocolate mixture (you may have to reheat it a little) and spread over the chilled vanilla layer. Just remember to firmly chill each layer before you add another. Keep in refrigerator or freeze. Cut into 1” pieces. Makes about 5 lbs. of candy. This is supposed to taste like the Bun Candy Bar.
