Goo Goo Makes the Comics Again: Blondie 5/11/16

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding

Bananas and peanut butter are a classic combination, so adding peanut butter to classic banana pudding was a no-brainer. But as chocolate aficionados, we know that the real trifecta of flavor lies in the crossfires of bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate. So we added Peanut Butter Goo Goos to this recipe, too! Look out y’all; this recipe is bananas.

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding

made with peanut butter goo goos

Ingredients:

Pudding:

4 Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters

3-4 ripe bananas

2  3oz. packages Cook & Serve Banana Cream Pudding

5 cups milk (do not use Skim)

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 12oz. package vanilla wafer cookies

 

Meringue:

4 egg whites

1 tsp. cream of tartar

1/3 cup sugar

Directions:

For the Pudding:

Chop Goo Goos into small, bite-size pieces. Peel and slice bananas.

Prepare dish by placing half the vanilla wafers in an even layer in the bottom of the dish. Arrange half of the banana slices on top of cookies. Scatter half of the Goo Goo pieces evenly on top of bananas.

In a medium saucepan combine 4 cups milk with pudding mix and, stirring consistently, bring to a boil over medium heat. Once pudding boils, remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until combines. Stir in remaining cup of milk. Continue to stir pudding until it has cooled slightly.

Gently spoon half of the pudding into the dish, covering the layers of wafers, bananas, and Goo Goos. Place the rest of the wafers, bananas, and Goo Goos in a layer on top and cover with the remaining pudding. Finally, chill dish in refrigerator to set, at least 2 hours.

For the Meringue:

In a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites on high speed until they begin to turn opaque white. Add cream of tartar and sugar and continue to beat until soft peaks form. Spoon meringue on top of chilled pudding. To brown meringue, use a kitchen torch or place dish under a preheated broiler until lightly browned (Don’t look away! It will only take a second!). Meringue is also quite delicious not browned 🙂

Goo Goo Warm Weather Shipping 2016

Spring is here! While we love the warmer weather that spring brings, chocolate isn’t really a fan. This is the time of year we have to start paying really close attention to the temperature and at any moment, could deem it necessary to flip the switch on our warm weather shipping policy.

Basically, this is what you need to know:
We always work hard to ensure that our chocolate is delivered fresh and in good condition. During the warmer months of the year when temperatures are over 70 degrees (typically April through October, but could possibly be other months as well), all candy orders are sent using insulated shippers and cold packs to help ensure the chocolate arrives in good condition via ground transportation.

This solution requires an additional $10 fee per shipment of candy, and will be applied to your order at checkout during warmer periods of time. It is possible that the warm weather charge could be on one day and off the next, but starting in mid to late April, it is likely to be on for good until October.

In addition, any shipments that would normally be scheduled to ship on Fridays will be held until the following Monday during warmer weather to ensure minimal time in transit. We reserve the right to make logical decisions regarding ship date based on weather conditions to ensure candy orders arrive in the best condition possible.
