  • PB Max candy
    Hello all! I used to love the PB Maxx candy made by the M&M/Mars company (?). Unfortunatly it is no longer made. Does anyone have a similar recipe?

    Homemade PB Max Recipe

    Crunchy whole grain cookie (see below)

    Peanut butter (Creamy)

    Nestle milk chocolate chips

    For peanut butter filling

    3 cups or a 28 oz jar of peanut butter (creamy)

    3 teaspoons powdered sugar

    Crunchy Whole Grain Cookie Recipe

    2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened

    2/3 cup shortening

    1 cup sugar

    2 eggs

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    3 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

    2 cups oats

    1 teaspoon baking soda


    In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugar. Add eggs, one at a
    time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine white wheat
    flour, oats. and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture. Place each
    cookie dough into a non-stick square muffin pan. Mold each cookie by pressing
    them inside the muffin pan square. Roll remaining dough out on flat surface on
    top of wax paper, (or in cookie sheet) using rolling pin. Bake at 375 degrees
    for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove both from oven and let them

    After cooled, remove each cookie out of the square muffin pan.

    Take the other cookies from cookie sheet, cut them up and crush them into
    chunks. (this will be over the top of peanut butter.)

    Combine powdered sugar into peanut butter in bowl and stir until powdered sugar
    is no longer visible. Freeze or refrigerate for about 30 mins. (It's easier to
    work with.)

    After peanut butter mixture is firmed, spread peanut butter on top of each

    Take the cookies you crushed earlier and place them on top of peanut butter and
    cookie until there's no peanut butter showing.

    Freeze assembled cookies for about 30 minutes or until it's fully hardened.
    (Easier for dipping)

    Take the milk chocolate chips and melt them in the microwave for about 2
    minutes. And stir. (if there are still chunks left, microwave for another 30
    seconds and stir.

    Note: If the chocolate is too thick, you can add about 2 tablespoons of
    shortening to make it thinner.

    Take the cookies out of the freezer.

    Dip each cookie (one at a time) into melted chocolate using a fork or a spoon.
    Cover any cookie showing.

    Once cookie is completely covered, lift up cookie with a fork and shake off any
    excess back in the bowl,

    Once the excess chocolate is done dripping, place them into square silicone
    mold or wax paper.

    Refrigerate for about 30 mins.

    After all the chocolate has hardened, remove them silicone mold or wax paper
    and place them on a plate and serve.

    Makes about 24 (if you have enough peanut butter). You will have plenty of
    cookie dough and crumbs leftover to make more.
