Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Once again the holidays flew by without getting around to everything on my baking list. So, over the past couple of weeks, the baking bug has hit and I’ve done a little catching up on making a few old favorites as well as trying some new treats too. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls are certainly an old favorite. I know I’m not alone when I say that. Chocolate and peanut butter is a combination that’s hard to beat, don’t you think?

    There are two things that I have to hide from my husband if I plan on using it in a recipe: dark chocolate, and nuts of any sort. It’s like he has a radar or something. A bag of almonds can disappear in no time, man.   So you can only imagine when…

One of my favorite treats of all time has to be a Chocolate Caramel Apple. I’ve never much cared for a candy apple, and a caramel apple, while certainly a delicious combination, has always been a little to messy for my liking. But dip a caramel apple in chocolate and something magical happens. I don’t know what it is, but it’s magic, man. The chocolate seals the gooey caramel in and combines with an excellent crunchy apple to create flavor perfection in my book.

Chocolate Peppermints

You’ll find many recipes around for chocolate dipped peppermints, but this is a very simplified version. As mentioned before, no dipping or exact patty shaping is involved, but instead, a mini bite of Chocolate Peppermints, perfect for inclusion in the party spread.

Taking the party outside around a bonfire works well, but the weather doesn’t always cooperate, does it? For those times, I decided to try an alternative and make s’mores in the oven. It certainly doesn’t measure up to sitting around a cozy bonfire, roasting marshmallows, watching sparks swirl from the flames. But it’s a close second, and pretty simple too.
