Guilty pleasure. And a pleasure it is indeed.

This is a delicious recipe, and really easy too. I had decided to make peanut butter cups, but my mother suggested that I make this instead, and I can't say that I'm disappointed. 

In fact, I had decided to save it for dinner...

But an exceedingly greedy person took a piece, just to see how it tasted. (bet you can't guess who...)

Here's the recipe.

Peanut Butter Candy
 Peanut butter 'dough':
1 cup peanut butter
1 and 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup brown sugar

Mix the peanut butter and the powdered sugar well in a mixing bowl. Add butter, vanilla and brown sugar. Beat until smooth. Press into square dish. Refrigerate while making frosting.

1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tsp. water
1 tbsp. butter

Melt chocolate chips, water, and butter. (I used a double boiler) Stir until smooth and spread over 'dough'. Refrigerate until firm, then cut into squares. Enjoy!

See? Easy, right? Guess you'll never know till you try! Have a great week, and let me know if you try it. :)

Grace be with you,

Abby :D

ps. Today's the Super Bowl, as everyone probably knows. Should be a good game. Who are you rooting for?

Ooh, that looks so yummy! Will there be any left Wed afternoon?

If not, I'll just have to make it myself!
