Peanut Butter Bonbons- with photos
« on: December 18, 2012, 04:28:19 pm »
Peanut Butter Bonbons. Makes approx 24
125g Raisins
125g icing sugar
125g peanut butter
25g butter

50-75g of Plain chocolate if just dipping the top of each bonbon
125g Plain chocolate if dipping the whole bonbon.

1. Melt the butter in the TM bowl 1min 30 sec/37c/ speed 2
2. Add the raisins chop 5sec/speed 6.
3. Add icing sugar and peanut butter chop5sec/ speed 6
4. Scrape down the TM bowl with a spatula and chop again 5sec/speed 6
5.Shape the mixture into balls and leave on parchment paper to harden overnight.
Next day
6. Melt chocolate.(I melted mine in a small bowl over a pan of simmering water.You could use a microwave)
7. Either dip the top if each bonbon in the melted chocolate or like I did carefully dip the whole Bonbon in melted chocolate.Place each bonbon on parchment to thoroughly dry.(I then melted a little white chocolate and drizzled over the set/dry bonbons.) When dry place in petite four papers.

(I suggest if you are experiencing hot weather you chill the bonbons in the fridge.Especially when you have dipped them in chocolate)

I made 25 pieces weighing approx 16g each.

Recipe supplied by Margaret Heywood  printed in " The Complete Farmhouse Kitchen Cookbook"

In the second photo I a cut bonbon to show the texture Uni.I used seedless raisins so they shouldn't be gritty.You could try dates ;)
DH was very surprised by the taste and really enjoyed it and wouldn't have if I told him it contained raisins. :-)) He's just had a second :o
DS just loved them.

I did :-))
No you don't dip them in chocolate the same day you make them Uni.They need to dry overnight.I kept mine on my kitchen counter top under a food umbrella.
