Candy

100_4940

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.

Sausage Balls

Here is the recipe I use to make sausage balls.  2 1/2 to 3 cups biscuit mix, l pound sausage, 10 oz shredded cheese.  The sausage and the cheese need to be room temperature.  I use cheddar cheese.  Any sausage will do.  If you have your own that is great but if I am buying it from the store, I prefer to get the less expensive brand.  They usually have more fat content and I think that makes them better.   This is a hands on recipe.  Then only way I have found to mix it all together is with my hands.  First I mix the sausage and cheese together then gradually add the biscuit mix a little at a time, making sure it mixed well each time.  Then form into balls.   Bake at 300-325 for 15-20 min.  Let cool and enjoy.  These are one of our family’s favorite holiday treats.    God bless.
