We were always experimenting in the kitchen when I was a kid.  My older brother and I loved to bake together and decided to recreate the popular candy of the day.  I updated it a bit for a smoother consistency, but this is basically what we came up with!  One caveat…the dishes afterward are a bitch!!!



Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl


2 packages chocolate chips

1/4 Cup Heavy Cream

1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter


In a double boiler over medium high heat, add the chocolate chips and let begin to melt.  Stir constantly and once nearly melted, add the heavy cream. 

Meanwhile, put peanut butter in a glass bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute.  Stir and return to microwave for 1 more minute.  Set aside and let cool a bit.  Spoon peanut butter into a ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the end.  (You can use a pastry bag, but that adds to the dish bitch.)

On a large, non-greased cookie sheet, spread the chocolate mixture evenly with a spatula.  Pipe the peanut butter in a criss-cross pattern over the top of the chocolate.  Use a spatula or small spoon to swirl it throughout.

Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper or cling film and place in the freezer until hardened. (About 30 – 45 minutes).  Take the cookie sheet outside and place it on a table.  Using your mom’s favorite meat mallet, whack the heck out of it until it breaks into pieces.  Get gooey chocolate all over your hands and run through the house on the ultimate sugar high!  Once your mother starts screaming bloody murder, go back outside and let her do the dishes….sorry, Mom!!
