a little valentine treat

February 10, 2011

Are you familiar with chocolate peanut butter balls also known as buckeyes? I made a little Valentine’s Day version (read: I made them into a heart) that would be a perfect party favor or sweet treat for the upcoming holiday.

First, mix 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1 Tbsp room temperature butter and 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp powdered sugar. I like to add about 3/4 cup rice krispies to the mix or crushed pretzels for a little crunch.

Press into an 8×8 pan then cut out hearts with a heart shaped cookie cutter. Put in freezer for ten minutes to harden.
