Hot Mix Asphalt Candy

Ever wondered what asphalt tastes like? If you make it right, it tastes like chocolate and peanut butter! This recipe is a great way to show kids how asphalt is made. The oatmeal and peanuts are the aggregate and the chocolate/peanut butter mixture is the asphalt binder. From the kitchen of Mindy Lance.

IngredientsHot Mix Asphalt Candy
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 stick margarine or butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 cups oatmeal (not instant)

Method
In a large bowl, combine oatmeal and chopped peanuts. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter and cocoa. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the stove and add vanilla, salt and peanut butter.

Pour hot chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the oatmeal mixture. Stir by hand until all oatmeal is coated. Important: Work quickly because the chocolate will harden quickly. Place and spread the mixture in Pour out onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Let harden and then cut into squares. You may also drop the candy by the spoonful onto wax paper.

 


FACT:
80 percent of old asphalt pavement removed each year is re-used.
