Chocolate and Peanut Butter ~ Wooo! You can't go wrong with either one and putting them together ~ OUT OF THIS WORLD! I found this Fudgy Buttons 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 can across this recipe, I read that it would make just enough to make me happy without making a huge mess. Honestly, the orginial recipe makes just enough buttons to make you mad, so I doubled it. Please excuse my photo. I have moved on from the PHD (push here dummy) mode to the manual mode on my husband's camera. That and trying out new editing software~ who knows what I will come up with!
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- 1 cup confectioners sugar

In a saucepan, over medium heat melt the butter. Remove from heat and add cocoa mixing well. Stir in sugar and milk stirring until smooth. Add peanut butter and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper; flatten tops and shape into 1-in. patties. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: about 2 dozen.
