Here is a fun recipe we really like, so I got the recipe from my mother and am sharing it. They taste like gourmet peanut butter cups. I'm warning you, this makes a TON so you may want to cut it in half, or plan on sending some to work with your husband or to pass out to neighbors and friends. Here you go!


2 lb peanut butter
1 lb butter or margarine, softened
3 1-lb boxes powdered sugar

Knead all of the above together. If too hard or crumbly, add a little
extra butter. Form into balls (about the size of a small walnut).

Melt together:

1 square paraffin
2 bags semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 oz each)
(toothpicks and wax paper)

Melt chocolate and paraffin in double boiler. Using toothpicks, dip balls into mixture and place on wax paper to dry.

Ah man that sounds good!! What is parafin, though?

Paraffin is a wax type substance that keeps the chocolate hard after you dip it and it dries. It's used in most chocolate bars.
