I made these for a cookie exchange once. I couldn't believe how simple, pretty, and delicious these were!
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk chocolate (NESTLE) hot cocoa mix
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup finely chopped cocktail peanuts
Line baking sheet with waxed paper.
Beat peanut butter, butter, and vanilla in medium bowl until creamy. Combine cocoa mix and powdered sugar in another bowl. Stir into peanut butter mixture
Place peanuts in flat dish. Scoop peanut butter mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls; roll in peanuts to coat. Place on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm.
If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree
or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that
means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex:
soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce),
all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc.
Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF,
if that is what you need.
