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.

Where have I been?

I've had a weekend in Rotorua. Not many photos, sorry. It rained.
I'm working full-time. Again.
I'm disheartened with blogging. What's the point? I still don't know the answer but here I am.
I've made some changes to the blog. If I can't figure it out at least I can make it pretty.
