The Everlasting Gobstopper
This is the candy that changes colors and flavors. Featured in Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, these have been made available in foreign markets for over 12 years now. While making it yourself is nearly impossible (unless you find a golden ticket to Wonka’s factory), you could try a few homemade candy recipes. To make your own version of this delectable candy, follow these simple steps. (adapted from damndelicious.net)
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 cup unsalted butter, cubed
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup pecans, chopped
In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar vanilla and salt over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly until butter has melted and the mixture is almond brown in color, about 10-15 minutes.
Immediately spread the hot caramel mixture evenly over the almonds. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. After 1-2 minutes, spread the chocolate chips in an even layer until smooth. Sprinkle with pecans. Bake, and allow to cool.
