Hi, I'm Chef Amee Hoge, and I'm here to teach you how to play with food where I take a classic recipe, change it up a little bit to create a whole new dish. Today, we're going to be making a Christmas candy using peanut butter chips. It's kind of like a peanut cluster only we're going to be using, I'm using a white candy coating or white chocolate chips. I'm going to be adding into my double boiler, pan on the bottom, an inch of water, a nicely tight fit pan on top and it's a nice, kind of like a hot water bath for the chocolate. We're going to add our peanut, Reese's peanut butter chocolate chips in there, get that melted in. I have some melted chocolate chips or melted candy coating. I'm probably going to add about a quarter of a cup in there as well, that's nice and hot. Don't put a lid on this, don't put a lid on this because the condensation from the lid, from all the water that comes up there from the steam will actually drip right into your chocolate and chocolate and water do not mix okay. So don't go there, this will heat up really quick. Actually it's almost already melted. Then what we're going to do is we're going to add some peanuts. I like a slightly salted peanut. Don't get the you know, the smoked or any of those crazy flavors or honey roasted, I don't know, you can try that I guess, that's playing with food, you could try that, I might try a small batch first, always go small. Then what I'm going to do here is I have about a cup of peanuts. I'm going to dump about half of it in there and I basically I want them coated, I don't want like a huge puddle of mixture, see how that is right there. Oh, steam in my face, steam in my face, little facial. Alright, probably going to add a few more. I think I'll add the whole cup, mix it up. Now this is pretty much it. All then you have to do next. So you want to make sure though, I'm sorry, you want to make sure that you don't have too much of that runny chocolate all over. If you need to add more nuts, go ahead and add more peanuts. You could also add pecans, you could add walnuts. You could add almonds, it's playing with food, it's just playing with food. Okay so what I want to do is turn off my heat. I'm going to take a cookie scoop, a smaller cookie scoop. There's all sorts of sizes and I'm just going to take that, fill it up to the top and scoop it right onto my baking sheet that's coated with wax paper and there you go. This will make and this is a small batch right here. This will probably make about a dozen right here, okay? These really work perfect for a gift if you want to give a gift, a candy little, a treat gift to your neighbors, whatever. Anyway, here's your finished product. You just pop these in the freezer or the fridge for maybe 20 minutes, it will harden up and then you can take them and they're really nice and they don't stick to each other and you can put them in a container and save them until Christmas.
