Personal Notes:
I like to spoon some peanut butter over the chocolate and use a butter knife to swirl it into the chocolate. It is pretty and makes the chocolate easier to cut. I got this recipe from Aunt Sara and Uncle Donald, and use it a lot when I need something quick done up. I haven't figured out out to make it healthy yet. Brenna also sent in this recipe and added: *or roll into balls and press a chocolate kiss in the center of each *or shape into ball for dipping, but chill balls first. From Emily: I also used to make this recipe quit often; I got it from an old book my mom had with hand-written recipes from the family. From Nora Hauck (whose recipe calls for 2 cups peanut butter but otherwise is the same): Mom and us girls made these for years to pay for girls' camps. Sold them at High School and from home. My mom had actual peanut butter cup molds that we coated the bottom twice, then filled, then covered the top with chocolate too. But simple peanut butter balls covered in chocolate works too. Or a friend of mine found this recipe (w/o the vanilla) calling it Buck-eyes, and you used toothpicks and dipped the lower half of balls in chocolate. Any way you do it it's yummy!
