I was asked specifically before baking to make something with peanut butter and chocolate. And why not? It's a great combination. Corey found these ones and even though we left out an ingredient, it worked out rather well.
Peanut Butter Balls from food.com:
Makes a lot
1 c. sifted powdered sugar
½ c. creamy peanut butter
3 Tb. butter, softened
1 lb dipping chocolate
Stir together powdered sugar, peanut butter and butter until well mixed. Shape peanut butter mixture into 1 inch balls, placing them on a baking sheet covered with waxed paper. It was at this point Corey realized she had forgotten the butter. We decided to roll with it anyway.
Let balls stand for 20 minutes until dry.
Melt the dipping chocolate or confectioners' coating. Drop balls one at a time in melted chocolate. Using a fork, remove from the chocolate, letting excess chocolate drip off. Place back on the waxed paper. Let stand until dry.
These are super rich. I'm not sure if forgetting the butter ended up being a good thing or not, but these were a nice addition to our cookie plates. To wrap up the whole bake day extravaganza, here are the completed plates themselves. I hope you all had a great Christmas!
