Pretty Mommy Has Me Cooking Again

Okay, so I have actually cooked since my last recipe post.  And I'm still getting messages from you about that one, so I'd say that my white chicken chili is world famous now- wink wink.  Considering that it will be pretty hard to top, this time I'm sharing a dessert.  I only make these once a year...because I have no self control when they're around.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bon Bons

2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup butter (unsalted)
2 lbs (or so) powdered sugar
24 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 bar paraffin wax

Load up the peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar into an electric mixer.

Combine until smooth.  You may need to add more butter or powdered sugar depending on consistency.  Go ahead and taste test (you know you want to!).


Roll into one inch balls and place on waxed paper.  I recommend putting a toothpick into each one to help with dipping in chocolate later.  Refrigerate for about 2 hours.


Melt the chocolate chips and paraffin until smooth in a double broiler (I don't have one so I made my own).  I wouldn't recommend using your best cookware for this because as you can see it is messy


While keeping the mixture warm, dip all but the very top of each ball into the chocolate.  Return to wax paper.


They should look something like this.  Mmmmm.


Chill the bon bons until the chocolate hardens.  Then transfer into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator or freezer.  They're ready to serve.


These babies are so ridiculously good, consider yourself warned.  I've already served them at 3 get togethers this week (because one batch makes 100+) and they're always a big hit! 

They would also make a lovely gift for friends and family.  Just package them in pretty boxes tied with ribbon.

They are sinful. We made them last Christmas! I guess the only good thing about our daughter's migraines is that she CANNOT have chocolate, therefore we don't have it in the house. It sure is helping her mommmas waistline this time of year. Wonder if we could make it with white chocolate as it doesn't contain caffeine??!!

These look incredible! I might have to make them. Only problem is, I have no self control either. I had to throw away a box of toffee this weekend just so I would stop eating it.

Salivating as we speak..em, write... :) Question: would it be wrong to consume a whole batch, cause I'm pretty sure that's what would happen if I made these
