"O Take THAT" Candies

Okay, after a week of flopped stuffing recipes, I've just decided to put it on hold.

Pre gluten free days, were filled with "Take 5" Bars by Hersheys. I was convince the name had more to do with the addictive nature of the candy, that you can't just take one, you have to take 5! LOL. Very delicious. Of course, they could be considered the perfect food. A pretzel, covered in peanutbutter, carmel, peanuts and then chocolate enrobing it all. Crunchy, creamy, salty, sweet. Heaven. :D

I have missed them.

I set out this evening to recreate them! And I did. Or in my best "Rocky Horror Picture Show" audience response in Dr. Scott voice "Unt I deeed".


I started with Wylde Gluten Free Pretzel "O"s by EnerG.

I took half a milk caramel (like Kraft) and cut it in half, rolled into a circle and flattened. I then "mushed" (yes, that's the culinary term....mushed) the carmel under the "O".

I then filled the O with crunchy peanut butter and topped with another O.

I chilled them for about an hour, and then rolled in melted milk chocolate to cover. Yes, I used Hershey's. And Yes, I do know that they won't guarantee gluten-free-edness....but I've not had a problem from them yet...and living about 60 miles south east of Herheys mean's it's plentiful and cheap!

I rechilled them...

And I ate half of them.

If you miss Hershey's Take 5 Bars, and don't mind a little work, I recommend trying it. :D
