SO HOW'D IT GO?

:) these were good, but they didn't harden very well at all, but great flavor!!!

I make these at Christmas too, with a veganized version of my aunt's recipe, and I always keep them in the freezer.  They harden, are are DELICIOUS frozen  ;)b

My grandma makes these are Christmas time, so I got her recipe and veganized it! The only thing I do different is add Rice Krispies and use crunchy PB...Delicious :)

This recipe came out soft.  If I made it again I would add less butter to the peanut butter and powdered sugar.  Also, the vegan chocolate chips I added didn't melt properly so I added extra butter, resulting in a soft chocolate coating as well.  When I make it again I will instead use a good quality chocolate bar (Sjaaks, Green & Blacks, Weiss... ).  If the peanut butter center was more firm and chocolate coating more uniform, it would be a good peanut butter cup substitute. 

I have silicon ice trays in different shapes.  It would be fun to put the peanut butter mixture in the trays, freeze them, remove them from the forms, and then add the chocolate coating.

I think this is a good recipe for to keep in mind if you have to bring a potluck-type dessert item to a large group event.  It’s an easy, fast recipe to make in a large quantity.

i've made this before but we included rice krispies.  that probably helps keep them together and gives them a little more texture.  they have a nice crunch and are sooo good, plus it's not such an overdose of peanut butter.  if that's possible...
