OK, DH just informed me what a pony keg is. He's giving me funny looks because I'm laughing at the computer. icon_razz.gif
I am inspired by my Grandma who was the best baker I've known. My wish is to now inspire & create warm memories for my Grandchildren.

It's just a smaller keg than a regular one I think. I'm not a beer connoisseur, so I could be wrong. thumbs_up.gif

I thought of a "signature" recipe of mine I could share. It's not candy or gift though, but is great with a big dinner. I make it at thanksgiving or Christmas. It's a variation of a Bobby Flay recipe, Sweet Potatoes and Bananas. I wrote it down somewhere...time to digg up...

Ok, I'm pretty sure we've talked about Buckeyes on here a few times, and had a few different recipes... well, todays Kraft Foods newsletter had this recipe in it and it looks like a much easier version since you don't have to roll them out and dip them! Good for when time is of the essence n'est ce pas?


Buckeye Bars

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
22 NILLA Wafers, crushed
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 of 8-oz. tub COOL WHIP Whipped Topping (Do not thaw.)
3 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate

LINE 8-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Beat butter and peanut butter with mixer until blended. Mix in wafer crumbs. Gradually add sugar, mixing well after each addition. Press onto bottom of pan.

MICROWAVE COOL WHIP and chocolate in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min.; stir. Microwave 15 to 30 sec. or until chocolate is melted; stir until blended. Spread over peanut butter layer.

REFRIGERATE 2 hours. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting to serve.

I think the addition of the Nilla Wafers is pretty interesting. It's most likely just to incorporate one more of their products, but it should give it a more crunchy texture. Might be good... might not! Hard to say until you make it!

Melvira I am curious, why not just peel the spuds (potato) before you boil them?

If you put lots of butter, cream cheese, sour cream, milk whatever into them they mash up silky smooth with a regular old potato masher.

If you pipe them into big rosettes on a baking tray and pop them in the oven to let the outside get crispy, they are yummy icon_smile.gif

Love this, thanks for all the wonderful recipes especially the pb ones all we use that for here is putting on bread so can't wait to try these!

banba, the whole point behind it is to NOT have to peel them! That's why I only made them rarely because it took so long to scrub and peel them. This is just that much easier because you don't have to bother with that. I used to make a deal with DH, I'd make him mashed potatoes if he'd do the peeling... so he only broke down and did it when he was desperate for them! Hehehe.

Peanut Butter Bon Bons

Not sure if anyone has put this recipe up yet or not, but this is the peanut butter bon bons that my dad absolutely loves. I get requests for these all the time.

The Filling:
1/4 cup butter softened
2 cup peanut butter
1 lb confectioners sugar.

Mix all together well. Roll into 1/2" balls. Dip in melted chocolate (i use almond bark).

This will yeild about 6 dozen hand rolled and dipped bon bons. These look great if you use the bon bon molds (tho it takes more chocolate) the filling goes way way farther. I used half of this filling recipe and got approx 150 bon bons using the molds.
