"I thought this was occasionally a food blog," you say. "So, where's the food?" (Or, as we say around here, "Where's the doof?")
The other day, after the frigid northern winds descended upon us, I decided this would feel good for lunch. I was right.
1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
1 cup of melted butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
coconut flakes (which I did not have) -- maybe 1/2 cup?
finely chopped nuts (which I did have, I used almonds and pecans) -- maybe 1/2 cup?
1 T. vanilla
Let's hope that's all, because if there are other ingredients, I've forgotten them. You blend all that well, roll it into balls, and either freeze them or chill them very well. Mine are in the freezer right now.
Then you dip them in chocolate -- a mixture of 1/2 block/bar of paraffin and a 16 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted in a double boiler. If you pierce the balls with a toothpick, you can dip them easily. Then lay them on waxed paper to set up.
So there's some food for you! Merry Christmas!
