A delicious use for Halloween leftovers
Halloween has come and gone. By now the chocolate is eaten and you are left with gum and chewy fruit and taffy stuff in the bottom of your kids plastic pumpkins. One of those taffies is likely a classic Halloween candy- the Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kiss. Wrapped in distinctive orange and black papers, it is a molasses chew with peanut butter in the center.
Let’s be honest. Most kids aren’t big fans of this candy (most adults aren’t either!) and when Thanksgiving comes around there’s a good chance these will still be hanging around in a drawer or cupboard somewhere. But wait—don’t throw them away! With only 15 kisses you can make a creamy peanut butter caramel sauce that is so good you might actually go out and BUY peanut butter kisses just to make more! Quick– Go and raid your kids stash of candy and surprise them with a caramel sundae or a caramel apple dip! It’s this easy:
What you need:
- 15 Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses (unwrapped)
- 15 Kraft Caramels (unwrapped)
- 1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
- ½ c. butter or margarine
How to make the sauce:
- Add all of the ingredients to a medium saucepan and melt over medium heat (stirring constantly) until completely melted and smooth.
- Pour over ice cream to make a sundae (the caramel stays soft even when cold!) or dip apples or pretzels in the sauce.
The Mary Jane Kisses add the perfect amount of peanut butter flavor to the caramel for a sauce that can be used for lots of things!
Three cheers for the Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kiss!!!!!
