Need help making candy poop

Postby Pesto » Mon Apr 19, 2010 6:43 am UTC

Management decided that each team in our company needed to come up with a name. We didn't really care, and were dragging our feet, so they came down on us about it. We decided to name ourselves Kopi Luwak (link) as a kind of passive aggressive protest. We even posted a picture of it in our cubes.

My first thought when I found that picture was the pool scene in Caddy Shack, which kind of makes me want to get back into candy making. It wouldn't be too hard to make a home made version of a Baby Ruth, but I want it to look a little bit more like the real thing. Assuming the basic structure of a Baby Ruth (nougat core, surrounded in peanuts, covered in chocolate), what could I use in place of the chocolate so the surface of the peanuts would still be visible?

caramel, perhaps? It varies from a baby ruth, but it would work.

Maybe some type of chocolate caramel glaze. That would be very good.

I definitely want it very brown in color, just not full on opaque chocolate.

Hmm... my take? Perhaps you could start with roasted coffee beans and chocolate? Kinda like a chocolate-covered espresso-bean type of thing?

No coffee beans. I want to be able to eat it. Coffee = bleah, whether it's gone through the intestines of a small mammal or not.

Besides, if you look at the picture, the beans are rather light in color, since they haven't been roasted yet.

Obviously we're gonna have to agree to disagree on that point.

Reminds me a lot more of a PayDay bar. Which is just peanuts on a caramel bar. Maybe a light dusting of cocoa?

The infamous Kitty Litter Cake recommends taking Tootsie Rolls, warming them in the microwave for a few seconds, then forming them into poop. Looks really convincing.

Couldn't you do the caramel/peanuts thing and just cook the caramel to a darker brown color?

You could do it kind of like an inside out Baby Ruth-- nougat center, coated in chocolate, then coated in caramel/peanuts?
