Rosie's Christmas Baking Continues.

Yesterday, I started out making Toffee Bars.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 aig yolk

1 tsp vanella aigstrakt
2 cups flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/4 cups Nestle's TollHouse Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

Beat butter, brown sugar, yolk, and vanella
in large bowl until creamy.
Stir in flour and 1/2 cup walnuts.

Spread INto 13 x 9 inch
buttered baking pan.

Bake in preheated 350 oven for 20-30 minutes, until lightly browned.

Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over surface.

Spread melted chocolate over surfa
ce and sprinkle with remaining walnuts.

Then, I made Buckeyes.

1 1/2 pounds powdered sugar
1 16-oz jar peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened
1 12-ox package semisweet chocolate morsels
1 TB shortening

If you notice in the above picture, I only had 1 pound of powdered sugar, so I just adjusted the arrrrussssipppppe accordingly.

In food processor, process 1/2 at a time.
Add 1/2 each of powdered sugar, peanut butter, and butter.
Process until thoroughly mixed.
Shape INto 1-inch balls and chill.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening.
Dip each ball in chocolate.
Place on wax paper and chill.

And... Wallah!!!


Some of the balls I rolled in Bits o' Brickle Toffee Bits.
You could also roll them in your choice of chopped nuts.
These are one of my favorite candies.

Oh, there's always going to be somebody who will ask you how you got the peanut butter INside the chocolate.
Be forewarned.
