How to make it

  • For the topping, melt 16 ounces of chocolate in the microwave. If you’ve never melted chocolate in the microwave, you must be very careful. Overheating it will turn it into a grainy mess. In a glass microwavable bowl, break up chocolate into small pieces; microwave on High for 45 seconds to start; stir, and then keep heating for 20 to 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each time. When it gets to the point where it only has a few lumps of chocolate left, heat for 10 seconds at a time.
  • Once chocolate is completely melted, stir in the Spanish peanuts.
  • For fondant, mix together the ingredients. It will be thick and stiff.
  • Spray a large piece of waxed paper with cooking spray and use a paper towel to wipe off any excess.
  • Roll the fondant into little balls, about 1" in diameter.
  • Place the balls about 3" apart on the waxed paper, then flatten each ball with the heel of your hand. The flattened balls should be a circle about the size of a silver dollar, and NOT paper thin.
  • Cover the flattened balls with the melted chocolate/nut mixture, letting it cover the top of the fondant and flow slightly over the edges.
  • Let the candies cool completey, allowing the chocolate to harden again, then flip each one over (use a spatula for best results - they should come away from the waxed paper easily once the chocolate has cooled and hardened).
  • To cover the bottom of the fondant with melted chocolate, melt the remaining 8 ounce chocolate bar in a seperate bowl and use a spoon to spread the melted chocolate over the exposed fondant.
  • Let the chocolate set and harden completely before storing the candies in a container with waxed paper between the layers. If it's hot outside, I would suggest you keep them in the refrigerator until serving.

    Chocolate, peanuts and fondant, oh my! Well I guess I'll just have to make these, too. I'll force myself to eat a few. And then a few more! I see that I'll have to make more than one batch of these. lol Thank you, Krum. I love Goody bars and haven't had them in years!

    I am wondering.. are these like the candy that goes/went by the name of BUN? Maple Buns, Chocloate Buns? Vanilla Buns? Looking at the recipe it sure looks like it could be a twin. Great post even if it isn't... and I will be trying this soon no matter what your answer is .. !
