|Phil and I met up with some pigeons for lunch today.|
We ate a pizza place in downtown Athens.
The tables were set up under a really cool tree/vine canopy.
It was still very, very hot.
Before Phil came home yesterday, I decided I wanted to try to make homemade Butterfinger candy bars. I used a combination of a couple different recipes I found online.
Butterfingers, Maybe Recipe
|1/8 c. water, 1/4 c. sugar dissolved over medium heat.|
Once dissolved, add 1/8 c. light corn syrup and heat med-high to 280 (f).
|Once heated, pull it off the burner,and add 1/4 c. warm peanut butter,|
and 1/4 c. smashed corn flakes.
Spread that whole mess out in a parchment-lined pan and score with knife.
|As it cools, chop it into pieces.|
At this point, I lost interest, and it was hot, and I didn't want to deal with melted chocolate. I ate a whole bunch when they were still warm, and they didn't taste much like the candy. As they started to cool, the taste got a bit closer. No idea where they're at now, taste-wise. If I can get my hands on some milk chocolate, I'll melt it, coat these suckers, and let you know what I think. You can trust my judgment, because I really, really like candy.
