Katie in the Kitchen

Katie was so cute when she asked me if she could help "make a treat" in the kitchen.
The boys were at school and Julia was down for her nap.
Since the house was quiet, we decided to try a new recipe.  We loved how they turned out.  
If you're looking for a major sugar rush, give these a try:

1 1/2 C. peanut butter
1/2 C. melted butter
2 1/2 C. powdered sugar
Stir all of the ingredients together.  
Stir in M&Ms.  
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Freeze for 20 min. or until hard.
Melt semi sweet chocolate chips in microwave 
(I heat it up for 1 min., stir, heat 30 more sec., and then stir until smooth.  
I usually start with melting 1 cup of chocolate chips first and use it up before melting more).
 Roll balls in melted chocolate.  Place an M&M on top of truffle and chill until firm.
