Kind of, Sort of, Close Your Eyes And You Won't Know The Difference



Almost Payday

1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup marshmallow creme
1/2 lb white chocolate coating, melted                                                  
Melted caramels, for dipping
Chopped peanuts

Mix together peanut butter, marshmallow creme and melted white chocolate coating.  
Roll into sort of log shapes or into balls, if it is easier.  Freeze.  It is absolutely necessary
to freeze these before dipping in the caramel, otherwise they will melt and mix with the
caramel.
Dip each frozen log or ball in melted caramel and roll into chopped peanuts.  

These truly are so easy to make and so tasty.  True, we have the sugar, but none of the other ingredients in a purchased candy bar, most of which I can't even pronounce, let alone describe!! Who in the heck wants to eat something we can't pronounce??!  
I hope you will give these a try and let me know how they turn out.  Wouldn't this be a nice kitchen gift, each piece wrapped separately, in delicate, pastel tissue paper, bagged in quart or gallon size bags and tied with a pretty ribbon  with a handmade tag attached?
 
Oh, gosh!  I'm getting nuts now and wanting to put this in a mixing bowl with measuring cup and a mixing spoon with a bow tied to the handle.  We are limited by only our imagination. Homemade is always better.        Be sweet and be good!!!
