Candy

We had so much fun yesterday making candy.  When we got to Vicki’s, she had already made sugar cookies for the kids to decorate.  They loved it.  After lunch, we made oreo truffles, then peanut butter balls and last we dipped oreo cookies in white chocolate.   It was such a fun day.  The recipe I use to make the peanut butter balls is:

1 stick butter-softened, 1 lb powdered sugar.  Mix these together.  Then add 2 cups creamy peanut butter.  Mix everything together.  You will need to add about 1/4 cup water to this.  Just add a little at a time until it is a little creamy. Be careful not to add too much water.  Form into balls.  In a double boiler, put 2 cups chocolate chips and 1/4 block parafin wax.  Heat until chocolate is creamy.  Dip peanut butter balls into chocolate.  Place on wax papered cookie sheet.  Refrigerate and enjoy.  These are much better after they chill.  I want to make Martha Washington balls next.  I think they are my favorite. 

Time for us to leave for piano practice.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

  2. We make these. We call them buckeyes. No church here today either. Snow storm. Amy is on her way back to Houston. She was here for work for a few days. John wants to know where the gravy and biscuits are …to go with the sausage and eggs? LOL We have enough food in the refrigerator to have left-overs for a week. Today was supposed to be our Christmas dinner at church, so I had to put it all in the freezer. Take care and stay warm!
