  • Candies

    • 1/2 - cup creamy peanut butter

    • 1/4 - cup butter or margarine, softened

    • 1/4 - cup chopped peanuts

    • 1/2 - teaspoon vanilla

    • 2 - cups powdered sugar

    • 2 - Tablespoons creamy peanut butter

    • About 1 tablespoon milk

Directions

Line 8- or 9-inch square pan with foil, leaving 1 inch of foil overhanging at 2 opposite sides of pan. Grease foil with butter.

  1. In medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup peanut butter, the butter, peanuts and vanilla.  Stir in 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until stiff dough forms. (Work in powdered sugar with hands if necessary.) If dough is crumbly, work in additional 1 tablespoon peanut butter.  Pat mixture in pan. Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm.  Remove from pan, using foil edges to lift. 

  2. Cut into 8 rows by 8 rows.  Line cookie sheet with waxed paper.  In 1-quart saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening over low heat, stirring constantly.  Dip peanut butter squares, one at a time, into chocolate mixture.  Place on waxed paper.  Refrigerate uncovered about 30 minutes or until firm. 

  3. In small bowl, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons peanut butter.  Beat in milk with wire whisk until smooth.  Stir in additional milk, if necessary, 1 teaspoon at a time, until thin enough to drizzle.  Drizzle icing over tops of chocolate-covered squares.  Refrigerate uncovered about 30 minutes or until firm.  Store candies loosely covered in refrigerator.
