Here is a recipe for today's delicious delights provided by one of our featured authors.
From Marianne Arkins:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 pound confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
1. Combine the melted butter or margarine, confectioners' sugar, peanut butter and the vanilla together and mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on waxed paper.
2. In the top half of a double boiler melt the chocolate chips and shortening, stirring constantly. Use a toothpick to dip balls into the melted chocolate, leaving a small uncovered area so balls resemble buckeyes. Place balls on waxed paper. Use fingers to blend in toothpick holes. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Enjoy!
