Sweet Sunday

Starting today, every (hopefully) Sunday, I am going to post a recipe for a sweet treat. I love Sundays because it is the day that I get to join other believers and worship my Savior. So...I thought doing something sweet on Sunday would be appropriate. I didn't get the opportunity to be in church today because Kael (my youngest boy) is sick. However, my day was still wonderful.

Today, my Sunday was sweet because I got to search out something so fun for my husband for Christmas. He is really going to be excited about it and that makes me happy. If you have a food blog (or any other blog) and would like to post a sweet recipe on Sunday, post it and then link back to my blog. Then, go to the bottom of this post and enter your information and post your link so we can check out your sweet treasures. I can't wait to taste!

The sweet treat for today is Peanut Butter Cups. These are AMAZING and great to take to parties. You are sure to impress with these! This recipe is from our family cookbook. My husband and our great friend, Barry, are completely obsessed with these little treasures. I hope you try and enjoy!

1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter (softened to almost melted)
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
2 (12 oz) pkgs. semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 tbsp shortening
1 3/4 inch paper or foil muffin cups

Beat the peanut butter, butter, and sugar until well blended at low speed in a mixer. Shape into 3 (10 in) rolls and wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cut each roll into 1/2 inch thick slices and place each in paper lined 1 3/4 inch muffin cup. Microwave the chocolate chips and shortening on 40% at 1.5 minute intervals until melted. Spoon over each peanut butter slice and refrigerate 2 hours or until well set. Keep stored in refrigerator. Makes 5 dozen.
