This past weekend was really productive. While Moon and Copper napped and the Pres melted the chocolate mixed with paraffin wax, I rolled the:
Peanut Butter Balls
12 oz creamy peanut butter
2 sticks butter (melted)
3 c graham cracker crumbs
1 lb confectioner's sugar
Mix together all ingredients and form balls using about one teaspoonful. Set aside.
Melt 12 oz of chocolate chips and 1/4 cake paraffin wax over a double boiler until smooth. Dip each ball, letting excess drip off. Place on lined cookie sheet (wax paper works really well). Allow to cool. I place them in the frig.
These freeze really well once the chocolate is completely dry. The paraffin wax makes the chocolate shiny and hard so they won't melt in your hand, nor stick together when placed in your Christmas cookie gift bags.
Oh, one more thing. The Pres is awesome at dipping...:)
