Recchiuti: Peanut Honey Batons

Oh Recchiuti. Here you go again, one-upping the Halloween candy makers.

Actually, it’s more like fifteen-upping, given how good most of your treats are, but I digress. This time, you’ve gone and taken the Payday bar and turned it into something edible with your peanut honey batons.

This remake of a classic candy bar is obviously far better than the original, if for no other reason than the use of far superior chocolate. In this case, the couverture was buttery and not too sweet, with subtle coffee and earthy flavors.

The peanuts inside were crisp and flavorful, and comprised most of the interior, with the caramel simply filling in the gaps. That caramel had a hint of honey, and was soft but not runny such that the couverture blends with it seamlessly with each bite.

Every inch of this is a pleasing combination of caramel, peanuts, and caramel.

Now if only the CVS a block from me carried Recchiuti. Ha.

Are you jealous of all the delicious chocolate I picked up from Recchiuti in the Ferry Building in San Francisco? It's OK to admit it.


  1. Oh yum, this looks very delicious! Mmm, honey.

  2. When were you at the Ferry Building? My parents live in the Bay Area--and I LOVE the Ferry Building! Very jealous!
