Candy Corn Peanut Butter Ball

Today I’m going to share with you one of the most amazing peanut butter combinations ever known to man. Obviously, peanut butter and chocolate is the best, but this combination is still mind blowing.

Peanut Butter and Candy Corn.

Here’s my reasoning. Candy corn is technically a colorful, fall-ish way of saying sugar. The saltiness of peanuts and the sweetness of the candy corn is just an amazing salty-sweet twist.

Peanuts mixed with candy corn has a definite salty-sweet flavor, but we wanted something a little extra. So we made a peanut butter ball mixed with candy corn. This, of course was very sweet and even though sweet is good, we wanted to add some extra flavor in there. So we coated the outside with peanuts, and dipped a pretzel in it. Now it is all perfectly balanced to make an addicting fall snack!

Who knew there were so many ways to make candy corn taste better? My friends and I love to bake with all kinds of things. We bake with chocolate and peanut butter, caramel and chocolate, marshmallows and chocolate, or sometimes we just bake cookies and dump in whatever we can find! But never before has it crossed our minds to use candy corn. I feel like I have underestimated the possibilities with candy corn, but now this dip has opened the doors to all new kinds of possibilities! Watch out, because this isn’t the last you’ll see candy corn in our posts this fall!

If you are having trouble figuring out how to roll your peanut butter ball into the peanuts, you aren’t the only one.  After all, the peanut butter ball is very soft! Here’s how I solved the problem. I put a bunch of crushed peanuts on a piece of waxed paper and gingerly lifted the ball of peanut butter mixture with our hands onto the paper.  Then turn the ball around to coat all the sides with peanuts. Then we formed it into the best shape of a ball that we could and covered it with plastic wrap.  You’ll need to refrigerate this dessert dip so that it doesn’t start to droop. Decorate the top with a few more candy corns if you’d like.
