H is for Homemade Eatmores

I love Eatmore bars.  I only buy them about twice a year because then they stay a real treat!  Sometimes, I even get Eatmore presents from my family - again not very often because they know I love them only very occasionally.

I worked at one of the local greenhouses on and off when my kids were little.  When you plant, everyone stands around tables and talks and jokes around.  It is always a great place to be - surrounded by plants, the birds in the apiary chirping, and the sun warming you through the greenhouse walls - so wonderful!!  Anyway, we were talking about recipes and one of the ladies happened to mention that she made these Homemade Eatmore bars.  I couldn't believe my good fortune when she brought in the recipe and a sample!  To make a long story short - they are even better than the real Eatmore bars - hardly seems possible but truly better.

Homemade Eatmores

1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
4 tbsp cocoa

Boil until thick and shiny - about 10 minutes on medium heat. I haven't overcooked these but I think they might turn hard if you do.

Add about 3 cups of peanuts - a combination of crushed and whole. (I add more...)

Poured into a well-buttered pan.  (Butter is best because it adds to the flavour.) (It is a 9x9 pan depending how many peanuts you add...)

Cut with buttered knife while still somewhat warm.  Separate when cool - these stick to themselves like crazy - a piece of parchment might help because I know from experience that they also stick to plastic.



  1. I LOVE EATMORES! Oh, and I can hardly wait to try these! Thanks Kathy!

  2. Those sound yummy. I don't think I've ever had one.

  3. I'm not a fan of Eatmores so I think I will pass on this particular recipe. But well done making your own!

  4. Oh my goodness - these posts are making my mouth water. New follower - looking forward to checking out some of your recipes!

  5. Cathy - I hate to admit this, especially since I am a diehard Eatmore fan, but these are even better than Eatmores!

    m pax - If you like peanuts, this is great way to eat them!

    Barb - You don't know what you are missing!
