This one is going to be a quickie. I just have a few minutes, but this is another recipe worth sharing!
This is yet another treat that I remember fondly from childhood when we would go back to Pennsylvania for Christmas. Cookies and candies are such a part of celebrations there...but I digress...as usual.
1/4 pound butter
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 1/2 C. peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
(and a whole lotta love, to quote my friend Tim)
*combine the above (I use my bare hands) and roll into large-marble-sized balls. Chill 8 hours.
After the balls have chilled, stick a toothpick into each ball. Then carefully melt the following in a small saucepan:
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 oz. parrafin wax.
Dip the balls in the chocolate/wax mixture and place on waxed paper to cool/solidify.
Then you eat.
I usually AT LEAST double the recipe. Once, I quadrupled it, but step one was nearly my undoing.
