Smoothies

As you can see … these are not the kind of smoothies that contain fruit.  They are smoothies because of their smooth texture and taste.  The peanut butter keeps the candy soft … they will melt in your mouth and your hand!

Smoothies are one of those quick things that you can whip up in no time.

This is what you will need …

  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 11 ounces butterscotch chips
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter (not the type requiring refrigeration)
  • paper cups (mini muffin or smaller)
  • sprinkles (optional decorations)
  • squeeze bottle (optional)

Line a mini muffin pan with paper cups.  Put both types of chips and the peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl …

Microwave for 1 minute, then stir.  Microwave again for about 30 seconds, stir … repeat if necessary …

This next step will just make your life easier … using a squeeze bottle helps keep the cups neat and speeds up the cup filling process.  Pour the melted mixture into a large squeeze bottle …

Warning … if you have teenage (or adult) boys helping you in the kitchen today, they may be tempted to squeeze the smoothies into their mouth instead of the paper cups!  I have lost many smoothies due to this “help”  with the holiday candy making in my home 🙂

Now, if you have the “help” under control … fill up the paper cups …

Tap the pan on the counter to flatten out the tops …

I like to add chocolate sprinkles just to give them a little decor … so add some sprinkles or drizzle with chocolate … if you like.  Place in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to harden up …

Package up and give them to someone you like …

This recipe makes about 40 mini muffin size cups.  Use smaller cups to get more!

  2. Boy, so late seeing this one. But you are a lifesaver. My son’s birthday is the 24th, and he adores all things peanut butter. And these are so super simple and look so lovely, that it will make his day. And mine. Thanks a million. Happy Holidays.

  3. I make this plain and I also put some rice krispies cereal in a zip lock bag and gently smash it. I
    then add it to some of the plain mixture. Two choices are then available.
