This is my daughter’s recipe that she makes for fund raisers, church, to give away on trays, etc. because it’s so good and it makes a lot. An older man at her church named Mr. Bud makes it a lot and gave her the recipe, so they all call it Mr. Bud candy.
-Made this for the first time yesterday in my brand new 700 watt “multi-cooker” which is like a glorified rice cooker (pan is non-stick coated metal). I used sweetened dark chocolate in place of the German chocolate. As suggested, I set my cooker to “warm” for the 3 hours without lifting the lid. It turned out perfectly and was a big hit among my co-workers. I made mine a little larger than tablespoon size and ended up with around 80 on 3 large + 1 small cookie sheet. Thank you Donna- this is a definite keeper!
-This is the most wonderful recipe!!! My hubby who is Mr Picky loves it and it is so easy to make and makes a ton! It is one of my have to make recipes for Christmas gifts. If you need a great recipe that makes a ton of great tasting candy this is the one!
-read through every page before embarking on the making of this delightful recipe. I have a 6qt rival crockpot that has in very small lettering underneath that “slow cooker”…so I followed the directions as stated except for a couple of tweaks as I did not want to risk ruining a very large batch of expensive ingredients. 1st, I used cashews instead of peanuts and I set it on low for the first half hour and when I felt the outside of the slow cooker it felt very hot so I reduced the temp to the “keep warm” setting and checked it again after 2 more hours and it was good to go for a total cooking time 2 1/2 hours with the first 1/2 hour on low. Turned out fantastic! Hope this helps Heather 🙂
