Personal Notes:
This is my mother, Lee Slichter's, recipe.
How to know you've reached "softball stage" without a candy thermometer? pour a few drops of mixture into a bowl of lukewarm water, when you can pick it up with your fingers without it separating, you have reached "softball stage".

I think I like peanut butter no-bakes better than chocolate, but both are WONDERFUL!
