Quick Peanut Butter Treat

You may not want to make these as they could significantly increase the size of your midsection.

I found these little goodies on Pinterest and thought I would give them a whirl.  They are a good summer recipe because you do not need to turn on the oven!!

1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 TB softened butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar

I confess, I didn’t really measure all of these specifically.  I mean we are not baking here so it isn’t that big of a deal.  You are looking for a consistency to roll into balls.

Take about a teaspoon of peanut butter goodness and roll into a ball.  Sandwich this in between two pretzels.  Once you get them all done, pop them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. 

 At this step you are supposed to remove them from the freezer and dip in melted chocolate.  I had some colored chocolate handy so I thought I would use that.  I started dipping but then thought I would just spread the chocolate over one side of the treat.  I put sprinkles on half of them but this isn’t necessary.  After this, back to the freezer they go.

These are a bit dangerous to have in the house. They look innocent.  Be warned, they are not.  It is relatively impossible to eat only one.  I prefer them cold from the freezer, as did everyone else.

While I was making dinner and these treats, my INCREDIBLY talented daughters were making a Fathers Day dessert.  Simple stuff you know……a wave pool with all of us represented on chocolate donut inner tubes.  They did such a fabulous job!  I’m sure you can identify who all of us are.
