Cute, huh? She is a sweetie. :) Love her so much. Then again, I think most of us love our pets lots! But yea, life is going well. I decided to switch one of my classes because it was about dance instead of actual dance. I was really hoping to take another dance class. :( Guess it is one thing I will have to look into for fitness or something. So, you might be wondering... how was your Christmas? To be honest, it was decent. I got some gifts off of my wishlist and I got a few that weren't on there, but were very thoughtful. I have 2 new cookbooks to tinker with and enjoy! I also got a new laptop! :O That was a major surprise, but a welcome one, since my Dell laptop has duct tape. My sister gets my Dell and I get to take my new laptop to school. The only painful thing is transferring all the info from one computer to another. I had to do that when my hard-drive was replaced, and I hated doing it then... let alone doing it AGAIN. Rawr. Ah well... I will persevere!
White chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
- 2- 2.5 lbs of white chocolate coating/vanilla candy coating (it looks like this)
- 5 cups of Rice Krispie cereal
- 1 stick of butter or margarine
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2 cups peanut butter
- Using a spatula, a spoon, or a fork, gently mix cereal and powdered sugar in a large bowl.
- In a small, microwaveable bowl, melt the peanut butter and butter. I suggest microwaving 1 minute and then in 30 second intervals. Make sure you stir often.
- Dump the melted butter and peanut butter in with the cereal and powdered sugar. Quickly mix with a spatula and then your hands.
- Start forming balls of the mixture. You can make them bite size or larger if you'd like. Work quickly or the mixture dries out!
- After you have used all of the mixture, wash your hands.
- Set out a section of wax paper for your finished product to cool on.
- Melt the white chocolate in a different microwaveable bowl. Start with 1 minute and then go to 30 second intervals, stirring after each heating.
- Dip the peanut butter balls into the white chocolate. Set onto the wax paper.
- Let them sit until they are dry to the touch and then store in an airtight container or eat!
This recipe will make 5-6 dozen if you make the PB balls bite-size, but it will make less if you make ping pong size or golf ball size PB balls. These remind me a lot of buckeyes, but with some crunchiness, which is nice. Really rich though! This is a recipe that I am going to make for many years to come! Happy Holidays! I hope that all of you who celebrate Christmas had a fabulous day!
