Peanut Goody Candies

A small piece of this rich, sweet candy is all you need so one batch goes a long way.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    2-3/4 pounds


  • 1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1/2 cup butter, softened, divided
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 3-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring


  • Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil and grease the foil with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter; set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chips and peanut butter. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes or until melted; stir until smooth. Spread half of the chocolate mixture into prepared pan; refrigerate. Stir peanuts into remaining chocolate mixture; set aside.
  • In another microwave-safe bowl, combine the milk, pudding mix and remaining butter. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil, stirring once. Gradually stir in confectioners' sugar and maple flavoring.
  • Spread over chocolate layer. Carefully spread with reserved peanut mixture (may need to reheat in microwave to spread easily). Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
  • Using foil, lift candy out of pan. Discard foil; cut into 1-in. squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Remove from the refrigerator just before serving.
