  • Caramel or butterscotch topping


What You Do:

  1. On each dinner plate, arrange four or five peanut butter logs (to look like chicken nuggets) and a small handful of the candy mix (for vegetables).
  2. Right before serving, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt to each plate for “mashed potatoes.”
  3. Top with gravy — a spoonful of caramel sauce or butterscotch topping.
