You Will Need
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 c. chunky peanut butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- ¾ tsp. baking soda
- 2 c. granulated sugar
- ½ c. water
- ¾ c. light corn syrup
- 1 lb. chocolate candy coating
- 8" x 8" pan
- Parchment paper
- A candy thermometer
- A baking sheet
- A dipping tool
Prepare the baking pan by lining it with parchment paper and spraying it with cooking spray.
Mix peanut butter, vanilla, baking soda
Mix the peanut butter, vanilla, and the baking soda in a small mixing bowl and set it aside.
Heat sugar, water, corn syrup
Heat the sugar and water in the medium saucepan over medium heat. Constantly mix until the sugar dissolves completely. Then bring it to a boil and stir in the corn syrup.
Cook the syrup until it reaches 300 degrees on your candy thermometer, and then remove it from the heat.
Let candy sit
Slowly pour the candy into the prepared pan and let it sit for 2 minutes. Then score the candy into 10 pieces with a knife and set it aside for at least 4 hours.
Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and cook it on medium, stirring every minute, until it melts. Then let the chocolate cool for five minutes.
Remove the candy from the pan while the chocolate is cooling. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it nearby.
Use a dipping tool to dip the candy into the chocolate, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Then place the bars on the baking sheet and refrigerate them for 10 minutes.
Serve these delicious bars once the chocolate has set.
