On the fourth day of Chocolate and The Great Outdoors Theme Week, I opened up a can of Uncle Buck's* Dipped Peanut Crunch (distributed by Bass Pro Shops, Springfield, MO).
Small squares of sweet peanut brittle confection had a chocolate layer on the bottom (or top, as you prefer). These gluten-free squares were cut to just the right size to enjoy a small piece or two without getting hands, pans or plates sticky in the process.
Packaged in a container with a pull-off metal tab and a resealable plastic lid, these would be convenient for a family camping trip or other adventure in The Great Outdoors. They're also a suitable small snack if you're stuck indoors—although I hope you won't be.
*The Uncle Buck's brand is apparently modeled after a real person. This may be a picture of him (right); I'm not sure about that. Bass Pro founder, Johnny Morris, has talked fondly about growing up fishing in the Ozarks with his dad, mom, and mom's brother Uncle Buck.
