Who finished singing that verse? 🙂 it happens. It may not seem very applicable on Tasty Tuesday, but hold on, it’ll make sense soon.
All you need is candy melts & Top Secret’s recipe for Reese Peanut Butter (here: http://www.topsecretrecipes.com/Reeses-Peanut-Butter-Cups-Recipe.html)
FYI: If you buy white melts and want to dye them specific colors (like I did for the eyes and beaks) make sure to add shortening because the dyes like Wilton’s cake dyes, will dry them out. Follow the heating instructions, and paint each layer separate and freeze for about 5-10 minutes inbetween layers. You can see through the following photos my layering process. Welcome to my duckies! I made three batches. The candies are completely reheatable through out the process. Use a food safe paintbrush as needed.
I will say that it helps to warm the peanut butter so that it spreads evenly in the shell. I used a plastic bag with a tip cut off, and if I didn’t push the peanut butter to the hole, it wouldn’t ooze out in the microwave.
Trim off the edging for prettier duckies!
