Cassie's Story

I got my kids involved in these little goodies tonight. Nothing like quality time.

These are simple and great tasting.


My pictures


1 - 10 oz
bag of reeses peanut butter chips
1/2 c
butter, softened
1/4 c
whipping cream
1 tsp
3 - 3 1/2 c
confectioners' sugar
1 - 10 oz
package semi sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp
plus 2 teaspoons shortening

Directions Step-By-Step

Gather ingredients..Place wax paper in baking pan. I used a jelly roll pan.

Ps: These peanut butter balls must chill for 2 hours, then another 30 minutes before coating in chocolate.
In a large bowl; melt peanut butter chips in the microwave for 30 second to 1 minute. Stir till smooth.
Add butter, cream, vanilla..stir till smooth. Slowly add sugar till holds its shape. About 3 cups. It will be stiff like dough.
Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Roll into 1 inch balls; place on wax paper covered tray. Refrigerate another 30 minutes.
In another bowl; melt chocolate chips with shortening in microwave 30 to 60 seconds. Stir till smooth.
Dip the balls in chocolate. You can roll or sprinkle with nuts, cookie crumbs, candy sprinkles.. I ground walnuts fine in my food processor. Or you can just leave as is.

These look yummy. I have been trying to come up with some ideas for our little Christmas dinner tomorrow and this is one of the little additions I will be adding. I love to bake and make new things. Of course my doc tells me no sweets. LOL.
I hope that you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
