Tasty Tuesday-Golden Chocolate Nuggets and Thousand Year Fudge

Today I have a special treat for you--a double recipe!  I finished The Hourglass Door Trilogy by Lisa Mangum and I can't resist assigning a (easy to make) chocolate treat to each of the books.

So, along with the recipe for the first book in the series, I give you a trio of fine chocolates to accompany a fine trilogy!

The Hourglass Door-Time Stopping Chocolate Truffles
The Golden Spiral-Golden Chocolate Nuggets
The Forgotten Locket-Thousand Year Fudge


Golden Chocolate Nuggets

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup graham crackers, finely crushed
8 oz powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 12 oz bags semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix peanut butter, cracker crumb, powdered sugar and butter. Form into one inch balls and flatten into patties.  Melt chocolate chips in a microwave bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Pour a small amount of chocolate into the bottom of a mini candy cup. Place peanut butter patty inside the cup and top with chocolate. Allow to cool on the counter. Makes 4 dozen.

Thousand Year Fudge

1 12 oz can evaporated milk
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter (not margarine)
10 oz chocolate bars, broken in chunks
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
13 oz jar marshmallow creme

Cook milk, sugar and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.  Stir constantly for five minutes.  Remove from heat and add chocolate bar, chocolate chips, and marshmallow creme. Stir until smooth.  Pour into a prepared cookie sheet. Makes 4 dozen small pieces.
