Candy Advent Calendar Tutorial Part II

Remember my candy advent calendar from Here? Well, you've got to have candy to put in it!!! So i decided to make some. I wanted to make some peppermint flavored chocolate, some almond flavored chocolate, just some molded chocolate and some peanut butter balls.

Here are the majority of supplies that you'll need.
I purchased green chocolates for the peppermint. I melted it down and then add a little peppermint flavor.

I used white chocolate for the almond flavor.

Then I wanted to make peanut butter balls.
Combine rice cereal and powdered sugar.
Melt butter and peanut butter.
Here it is melted.
Add peanut butter to rice cereal.
Roll into balls.
Chill and then roll in chocolate.


Peanut Butter Balls

2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 stick of butter
3 cups of rice cereal
4 cups of powdered sugar
Chocolate for melting

Melt peanut butter and butter in a pan. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl combine rice cereal and sugar. Add peanut butter mixture to bowl of cereal. Mix well. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Place in the freezer for about 20 minutes until completely cooled. Meanwhile, prepare chocolate by melting it in a double boiler. Dip balls into chocolate and replace on wax paper. Chill until harden.

In the end this is what you'll have. Mmm.......

Now fill your calendar and close the doors. See what surprise is in store.
