Two of these are from Kilwin’s, and two are homemade. Which is which?
Ok, I made the ones on the right. But they tasted exactly the same, for less than half the cost.
Because the ones on the left were $1.50 each, my husband and I only bought two when we were at Kilwin’s recently. But they were so tasty I could have eaten a few more 🙂 . I figured I could make them for less money at home, and it was actually pretty easy!
All you need is:
- Wax paper
- One 11.5 oz bag of milk chocolate chips
- A handful of peanut butter chips
- 15 Nutter Butters
Clear off a shelf in your fridge. Melt the chocolate chips in a non-stick saucepan on the “melt” setting (or the lowest setting on your stove). Stir frequently with a non-stick spatula. When chocolate is melted, drop Nutter Butters in and use the spatula to make sure they are evenly covered in chocolate. Use the spatula to transfer the Nutter Butters to a large plate that has been covered with a sheet of wax paper. Press 5-6 peanut butter chips into the top of each Nutter Butter. Transfer plate to the fridge to let the chocolate harden. This takes about 2-3 hours. Remove from wax paper and store them in a covered container in the fridge when they are finished. Let them sit at room temp. for a little while before eating.
I was able to make 16 chocolate covered Nutter Butters with one bag of chocolate chips. Here’s the cost break down if you’re curious:
Kilwin’s Chocolate Covered Nutter Butters: $1.50 each plus sales tax; Cost for 16: $25.68
Homemade Nutter Butters: $0.46 each (no tax); Cost for 16: $7.36
Difference: $18.32 saved!
The homemade ones would be even cheaper if the chocolate is bought on sale or if the Nutter Butters are buy one, get one free.
These would make a great gift or a fun dessert for your next party. Enjoy!
