News Brief: Cooking with See’s Candy

May 30, 2010 at 8:30 am Leave a comment

See’s Candy, the venerable California confectioner, has added some intriguing recipes to its website, the better to inspire home cooks seeking new heights of novelty and succulence. Add See’s Candy to just about everything; it’s “the secret ingredient next time you bake.” Mmm… Here’s just a few of the ideas from the See’s Kitchen:

A few of the recipe ideas are delicious variations on familiar themes. Cookies with crushed peanut brittle sounds yummy, sort of peanut butter cookie meets toffee bar. And how could brownie mix suffer from the addition of a pound of Milk Patties, flat caramel disks covered in chocolate. Layer them with the mix and bake for a caramely-chocolatey treat. Or try mixing whipped cream with crushed Toffee-ettes and Peanut Brittle for a lucious cake frosting.

You’ll find a few recipe surprises here. Banana coffee cake, for example, will definitely taste better when you add a half pound of chopped Pecan Buds (with caramel and chocolate).

Then there is the killer app, as they say: Scotchmallow Rolls.

Scotchmallow is one of my favorites: a layer of marshmallow, a layer of caramel, all coated in milk chocolate.  So you take one of these good sized candies, cut it in half, spread the halves in a triangle of refrigerator crescent dough, and roll it all up. Sprinkle with sugar, bake, and …. oozy, sweet, gooey.

Now that’s candy cookery.
