Chocolate and peanut butter is one of my most favourite combinations! Whose isn’t it? All those people who yell at me in capital letters that they are allergic to peanut butter. I feel for you, I really do as I couldn’t imagine being without my addiction, but finding a substitution is probably something easier for you to do, than me. There is also this amazing thing called Google.
This recipe is a special one to me, as my girlfriend Melissa made it for us during a Christmas Cookie Exchange one year. Unfortunately, a number of years ago, she passed away. I felt so lucky being able to continue on using her Dad’s recipe for this creation. I know she would have loved it, and I appreciate my time that I got to spend with her, albeit too short.
You can make these traditionally by rolling the peanut butter mixture into balls, and dipping them into melted chocolate. But if you’re looking for an adorable Thanksgiving treat, you have to try these. They’re super simple, and the only thing that takes time is the setting of the chocolate. I address this in the video, but I chose to use melting wafers/almond bark as they set faster than regular chocolate.
