Peanut Butter Gianduja

Found this box at the local hobby shop.Perfect for chocolates.

I've been putting off this post for a few days now.Finals came up,so I was concerned with that and now I'm at my parent's with a slow connection and can barely upload pictures. Crapola! This is my third and final post on my christmas chocolates this year. I fared quite well for my first time of actually getting something out and look forward to next year. This year's box includes 4 different confections.

1. Matcha Bonbons
2. Gingerbread latte Bonbons
3. Caramel Squares
4. Peanut Butter Squares

Peanut Butter "Gianduja" (seriously my new favorite word)

1 part peanut butter, smooth
1 part white chocolate chips

1. Melt white chocolate in microwave using a microwave safe container.
2. Melt the peanut butter in a microwave safe container as well.
3. Mix the peanut butter and white chocolate together until thoroughly combined.
4. Line a small baking sheet with foil or plastic wrap and pour mixture into sheet.
5. Level it out and put in the freezer to harden. (It's much easier to cut while cold)
6. Take out of foil or plastic wrap and cut into 1 inch sqaures using a heated chef knife.
7. Place back into freezer until ready to dip into melted chocolate.

Happy Holidays!

Hi Veronica, I am a fellow MLFB and checking out your blog for the first time... Your chocolates look gorgeous! I meant to make Christmas goodies this year but never got to it, so I'm thinking of doing it for Valentine's Day instead. I'm not super talented in the confection department, but the caramels look like something I could handle. I'll put you on my blogroll :)
