Sleigh Ride & Sweet Recipes

Whom am I kidding? There's no Sleigh Ride going on down here in Texas, not in the traditional spirit of the song, anyway.  But there is a LOT of Christmas cheer in our hearts and our home. Jennifer over at Rowdy in First is having a holiday recipe linky party, so here's the peanut butter ball recipe we've been enjoying for years. They disappeared so fast that I don't even have a picture!


YUMMY Peanut Butter Balls


1 stick butter, melted * 1 cup powdered sugar * 1 cup peanut butter * 5-6 cups crushed Rice Krispies * Stir powdered sugar and peanut butter into melted butter, add five cups of crushed crispy rice (and a sixth cup if needed). Chill overnight.  Form chilled dough into balls, dip into melted chocolate, let dry and enJOY!


Here's a bonus that I just finished trying;  Reagan over at Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits recommended it and she was R.I.G.H.T. about how amazing it is! 
Click on the picture to be transported to the recipe her friend Jessica shared.  
What a gift this cyberspace collaboration thing is!!




I'm not sure if it breaks blogging etiquette boundaries to post home movies, but I'm sending a musical greeting your way along with our wishes for a magical holiday. So make a batch of peanut butter balls or that amazing caramel corn - we put pecans in ours! - and enjoy our youngest musician tickling the ivories in a spirited version of 
Sleigh Ride.

  1. I'm so disappointed that you didn't have a picture of the Peanut Butter Balls. I love Peanut Butter and these sounds so yummy. I'll email you my address and you just can send me a large sample in the mail. :-) Your son did an awesome job playing the piano. When I grow up I want to play the piano too! lol ~ I hope you have a Merry Merry Christmas!
