“My sister and I became addicted to Nutella while traveling in Europe. Now we’re always thinking of ways to incorporate the chocolate hazelnut spread into recipes. This one came about after making puff pastries with apple filling. We thought, ‘Why not try chocolate?’” —Dee Wolf, Syracuse, Utah
Chocolate and peanuts are two of my favorite treats, and the combination in this recipe, along with butterscotch, gives this candy a special flavor. My mother made these for Christmas every year, but they're so easy to fix, you can enjoy them anytime.
German sweet chocolate gives rich flavor to this simple specialty from Helen Phillips. Just a handful of ingredients and a microwave make the sweet fondue a fast favorite at her Horseheads, New York home. "We like it with dippers such as bananas, strawberries and marshmallows," she writes.
I love chocolate and it is so quick and easy to make that I can surprise my family anytime of the year. This is also good using chocolate fudge flavored pudding mix. You can also use chocolate flavored Cool Whip instead of regular Cool Whip. It depends on how much you love chocolate. Feel free to add toppings of your choice.
"The treats are easy for any age to make but pretty enough to share with friends. You can add color sprinkles to customize them for any holiday or occasion," relates Marcia Porch of Winter Park, Florida.
