Butterfingers, Maybe

Phil's home! He got back yesterday, and took a lot of fantastic pictures, none of which are posted here. Maybe I can ask him to share.

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.

I also did laundry before Phil got home so I looked mega-productive.

Bella helped, as she always does.
