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