Rocky Mountain Candy

Pin It!


Ahhh peanut butter. There is really nothing quite like it, is there? A very little known fact is that March 1st was actually National Peanut Butter Lover's Day and this year, I decided to go big! To celebrate this obscure holiday I decided I would invent my very own oh-so-delicious peanut buttery treat. This delicious candy is full of peanut butter, marshmallows and coconut, all nicely packaged in a delicious white chocolate shell. The name of this candy seemed obvious as when I looked at the mounds of white chocolatey goodness that lined my baking sheet, I couldn't help but picture the beautiful snow-covered Rocky Mountains!

Rocky Mountain Candy Recipe:  |Print Recipe|

3/4 cup mini marshmallows

1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter

1/4 cup shredded coconut 

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon butter (melted)

1-1/2 cups white chocolate melting disks (melted)



In a medium bowl, combine marshmallows, coconut, peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar. 

Roll into 12 ping pong sized "balls" and place on a baking sheet. 

Put the baking sheet in the freezer for about 20 minutes, or until the mixture begins to firm up.

Remove from freezer and using a spoon, roll mixture in white chocolate, remove and place directly on parchment paper or in cupcake liners to harden.

Makes 12 candies.
