Baking Day 2 Peanut Butter Balls

12 Dec

Peanut Butter Balls

Day 2 consisted of me hanging out with my twinny Nadine and her kids. We had a blast and also managed to churn out a few goodies as well. We did Santa hats, peppermint bark and peanut butter balls.

Let me tell you the peanut butter balls were so good. I learned a new trick to do with the powdered sugar in these to make the smoothest balls I have ever tasted. Mine tend to be on the dry side but these were so creamy and so dreamy!
