My goodness it's been a busy past little while. We moved into our apartment. I actually managed to hang pictures today! I've got my dresser from my parents house too! I also got a few other things put away and organized.
Anyway, I have decided to share the first recipe and it's one I've made a couple times here during the time when I started to stress. My husband laughed when he came home and joked that for dinners I made Hamburger Helper and other easy and quick dinners but the first thing I made from scratch was my favorite little treat called "Buckeyes" and with out further ado (and rambling) here is the recipe:
2 cups of creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup of unsalted butter (room temp)
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla
2- 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
Cream the peanut butter and the butter together. Add the salt and the vanilla and mix well. Add the powdered sugar until it becomes a firm dough. If needed add more sugar than called for to make it thicker. Roll the dough into 1" balls and refrigerate for an hour (Tip: to roll the balls easier you should wash your hand often in between every couple balls or the dough will start sticking to you). Remove the balls from the refrigerator and dip half way into the melted chocolate and put them back into the fridge for another hour then serve. They should be kept either in the fridge or the freezer depending on where you live they might melt fast.
