Daniel's StoryDo you remember Creme Drops? I was talking with my 90 year old Uncle and he told me that when he was a kid he would go into town and buy a pound for 5 cents and eat them all on the way home. They are kinda hard to find but some stores carry them at Christmas time, I found them at Dollar General. Please try this recipe it is too easy and boy are they good.
creme drops (cone shaped candy with a vanilla creme filling covered in a rich chocolate coating
peanut butter, creamy (or can use chunky)

1Line a 8 x 8 inch square pan with wax paper or parchment paper. In a microwave safe glass bowl (I use a 4 cup glass measuring cup), mix all ingredients, I like to dice the creme drops into 4 pieces. Microwave on high power for 2 minutes.
2It will come out soupy just keep stirring very quickly and it will thicken up pretty fast. Make sure that you stir very well making sure that any of the white center that may have clumped a little gets dissolved.
3Spread into prepared pan and refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into small pieces and store in covered container in the refrigerator.
If not fully melted microwave a little longer.
If you want it more chocolaty add 2 handfuls of chocolate chips.
If fudge is too soft reduce butter to 1 Tablespoon.

Glad to bring back some special memories from the past. My Dad would ask me to get him a couple of bags of these for him to snack on while sitting in his easy chair watching TV. The bag I got from Dollar General was 7.5 oz and I have also used 9 oz bag in the past, either size is okay. Pop loved his sweets and he was amazed that I could turn a bag of his favorite candy into a batch of fudge in a couple of minutes. I really miss him and Mama too, they both passed in March 6 days apart, I sure miss cooking for them.

To my delight, I have found these Creme Drops in the impulse item area of Hobby Lobby in Indiana and Illinois. I thought I was the only person around who was buying these. I remember seeing them somewhere as a kid...and never forget how much I loved them.
