Chocolate and Peanut Butter! You can't go wrong with either one and putting them together ~ OUT OF THIS WORLD! 

I found this recipe in  a Taste of Home magazine that was given to me from my friend Sharon. I was cleaning out some boxes that had secretly been hidden ( I'm the secret hider) since we moved here last year and came across this particular magazine. While looking through it, a craving for chocolate hit me out of nowhere. 

When I came across this recipe, I read that it would make just enough to make me happy without making a huge mess.  Honestly, this recipe makes just enough buttons, to make you mad. I recommend doubling the recipe for a huge chocolate craving.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudgy Buttons

2 tablespoons butter
1-1/2 teaspoons baking cocoa
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon milk
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

In a small saucepan, melt the butter; remove from the heat. Add cocoa and mix well. Stir in sugar. Add milk and stir until smooth. Add peanut butter and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper; flatten tops and shape into 1-in. patties. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.


** I put my buttons in the freezer and when they came out they were kinda like a small peanut butter cup.**
