I meant to post up this Peanut Butter Bon Bon recipe in December, but just didn't get around to it, but hey, better late than never! This is one of our favorite Christmas treats and peanut butter has lots of protein, so they must be good for you! I originally got this recipe from a coworker of my DH several years ago. It's been a holiday staple since. I have simplified the recipe as well (who had a double boiler these days?!), so keep this in mind when you're hankering for a great mix of peanut butter and choclolate when nothing but homemade will do :)!
Peanut Butter Bon Bons
1-7 oz. Chocolate (this is the giant sized bar. You can substitute milk chocoloate chips if needed)
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/8 stick parafin wax (found in baking aisle)
1-18 oz jar peanut butter
1 stick butter
1 lb box powdered sugar (I use a little less than the whole box)
3 c. rice crispies cereal
In microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate bar (broken into pieces), chocolate chips and wax. Be sure to shave the wax into the chocolate otherwise it will never melt. Heat on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Keep heating and stirring in 30 second increments until chocolate and was are melted.
In large bowl, combing peanut butter, stick butter and powdered sugar. Mix together then add rice crispies (can use a little less if mix gets too dry). Roll into balls and dip into melted chocolate. Place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper and place in fridge till firm.
These are delicious, enjoy!!!!
