As you know, Alison started school last week, but Ryan had an entire extra week of his summer. His first day back to school was yesterday. If you read my post on Traditions then you know that not only was yesterday a school day, but also
Ryan’s request for his first day of school cookie was a cookie that my friend , Cheryl, makes only for the holidays.
She brings them to my annual cookie exchange each year
and it just might be Ryan’s favorite cookie of all-time..
peanut butter balls….
:full disclosure to my weight watchers friends.. enjoy this recipe, but don’t plan on anything else for the week in your WPAs.. you won’t be able to stop at one.. trust me 😉
you will need:
*2 cups peanut butter
*2 sticks of butter
*1 pound of confectioner’s sugar
2 cups of graham crackers
chocolate, for dipping
Start by creaming the peanut butter & butter together; add confectioner’s sugar.
Stir in graham cracker crumbs.
Chill briefly ( this makes the next step easier 😉 )
Roll the mixture into bite size balls..
melt the chocolate either in the microwave or on a double boiler. Dip each chilled ball into melted chocolate one at a time then allow to cool on wax paper or aluminum foil.
*this is where I let you down*
I can’t find the pic of the finished PB balls 😦 and as you can imagine.. they are all gone 😦 😦
I will go through past pictures, because I cam sure that I have a picture of these wonderful little treats all plated up, for for now, just imagine those peanut butter balls of goodness dipped in melted chocolate, then cooled to a nice chocolate crust.
easy & delicious!
Thanks, Cheryl!! for such a great recipe!
