Did you know that October is National Cookie Month? I am joining up with the hosts of Merry Monday for a month long cookie and dessert share-fest! We will be including cookies and desserts. You can join in too! It can be any type of sweet – even healthy ones! Each week the hosts will share a dessert recipe on their blog, which will also contain a special in-linkz roundup of the treat recipes shared on Merry Monday! Recipes starting next Monday will be on all 5 host’s blogs during the month of October!
Ok, now on to this delectable thing I have going on for my first week. These peanut butter balls are my husband’s absolute favorite holiday treat. Although I altered his mother’s original recipe, I think my status as “best wife ever” would seriously be in question if I couldn’t make these. He begs for them from his mom and myself every chance he gets. The man isn’t your subtle hint type either. He also isn’t the begging type either which makes this all the more entertaining. If guilt tripping means that I bake cookies, put a sign on my forehead.
(READ BELOW, THIS IS JUST A CONFUSING DEMONSTRATION, LOL)
Update: My Chocolate Dipping Skills have gotten a bit better and I made a batch that fully immerses the peanut butter balls in the chocolate because now I can get a thinner, more even outside covering. A special note is that these are dipped in real chocolate, not that melting candy coating stuff. Wilton’s Candy and other melting chocolates are great with delicate flavors like Petite Fours or Cake Pops. Quite frankly, and this is my opinion alone, I want real chocolate for this even if I don’t get those awesome perfectly smooth truffle balls that you see on many blogs. Thank you very much!
Check out what the host’s are sharing! More to follow next week.
