Maple Nut Goodies Recipe


Does anyone have a maple nut candy recipe, like the Maple Nut Goodies candy? My father loves those candies and I was hoping to make him some for Christmas.

A friend gave me this recipe in 1985, but I've never made them. Her note on them was they were "Very rich"!

Nut Goody Bars

Melt together:
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Butterscotch Chips
1 Cup Peanut Butter
Pour half of this mixture into a greased 9X13 pan. Cool.
Add to 2nd half of this mixture,
1 Cup Chopped Salted Peanuts.
Set this aside.

In a saucepan, melt:
1/2 cup Butter
1/4 cup Milk
2 Tbsp. Regular (not instant) Vanilla Pudding
Bring to a simmer, then add:
3 cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp. Maple Extract
Pour over mixture in 9X13 pan. Let Cool.

Pour the Chocolate/Butterscotch Chip, Peanut Butter mixture that you had set aside over the top.
