milk chocolate chips
I absolutely love these. They were so simple to make. I didn't have any raisins though so I doubled up on the nuts ( which by the way I used Honey Roasted Peanuts). That's all I had handy... but ya know they came out great. They tasted awesome!!!! I would defnitely make these again and again!!!! A+ to the person that submitted this recipe :
we found these just too sweet with the milk chocolate - and i even added more raisins and almonds. easy to make, though.
These turned out really well, and couldn't be any easier to make. The chocolate didn't pool on the bottom, which happens to me a lot with this type of candy. They look very professional and pretty. And taste great! The only problem is that they melt awfully fast in your hand. I'm sure a more experienced candy maker would know how to resolve that.
I have made these with craisins, dried blueberries and chopped dried cherries. Have never been disappointed!
These are great and very simple. My husband was wary of them, but I was curious, so I went ahead and tried it. He loves them! I had to use honey roasted peanuts since that is all I had, and they actually worked. I did not chop the peanuts, and some parts of the treat are hard to bite into, so if you have the time or are making them for a party, I would go ahead and break them down just a little for ease. But for us, it was fine.
A wonderful homemade treat for chocoholics. These are really yummy, Noel. But why save them for Christmas. To a chocoholic, these would be good annyyytiiimmmeee! Thanks for sharing.
This was SO easy to make! I needed something fast and easy for a potluck party. I followed the directions exactly except I only had walnuts. So with walnuts, raisins, it was GREAT. I used the Barefoot Contessa's trick and added 1 teaspoon of instant coffee to brighten the chocolate flavor...this was amazing. I almost didn't want to share! Thanks for the GREAT recipe!
This recipe is wonderful, easy, and fast to make. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins and they were delicious. The name, however, could use some work. My brother and I decided that we didn't want to tell people that they were called "cow pies" thus draw up such an image in their heads. Instead, we called them "Bonzai". Much more appetizing.
