How to Make the Old Fashioned Cream Drops?
In the easiest way, you can make your childhood chocolate recipe-
Take a baking pan that comes with 8ʺ by 8ʺ size and grease it with olive or regular cooking oil. Then wrap the pan with parchment paper. It’s a grease-proof and heat-resistant paper that will keep your dish safe from burning.
You must grease the parchment paper as well. You either can use the butter to grease or cooking oil. It depends on your preference.
In a bowl, take butter. Let it melt well if not melted yet. Now, add peanut butter, old-fashioned vanilla drops, and vanilla extract. Keep stirring them all together and allow mixing. It will take 2 to 4 minutes to get a smooth mixture. Make sure all the ingredients are incorporated perfectly.
Now pour the mixture into the baking pan and smush it down properly. Spread into each corner evenly with a spatula. Since the mixture is a bit thicker, it sits very quickly. Therefore, you need to press them tight as quickly as you can to spread them evenly.
It’s a no-baking dessert item. So, you need not go for any baking or cooking process. All you need is to refrigerate the pan for 30 minutes or for an hour if you have plenty of time.
After refrigeration, get the pan out and cut the cake into a square shape. It will allow you to get a number of chocolates. Your old fashioned cream drops recipe is ready to serve and enjoy.
