Sweet things

It's a bit bleak today so perfect for indoor things. I've caught up on the mending and made these "Buckeye candies" for my daughter who adores them! I think I found this recipe in a Nestle ad. They are super easy and taste a bit like Reece's buttercups!

Buckeye candy
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter - smooth or crunchy
50g butter, melted
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups Nestle dark (or milk) chocolate melts

Put icing sugar, peanut butter, butter and vanilla in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Roll into small balls. Refrigerate 1-2 hours.
Melt the chocolate and using a toothpick or skewer dip each ball leaving about a third uncovered. Place on a tray lined with baking paper or foil and refrigerate again until chocolate is set.
Makes about 25-30.

I hope there are sweet things in your day today.
