Goof Balls

I'm stuck. On dessert. Have you noticed?

Don't worry I've ate other meals, but nothing worth writing about it. It seems like I'm a on a cooking block...instead of writer's block. Nothing is scrumptious enough to share with you other than my tried and true recipes. Wish me luck on getting out of my slump!

This yummy little Goof Balls are addicting. Terribly addicting. I always make them for Christmas, but I should really make them more often, or not. The thing is ... they'd go straight to my hips. My hips are plenty big as it is so I might ban them to Christmastime.

The recipe originates from my Aunt Cheryl. She's a master in the kitchen. I knew I "had" to have the recipe when I had them the first time. She also makes one wicked apple pie. I have that recipe yet.. but I have yet to attempt that one. Pies scare me. I need to embrace them and get over my fear. Someday a pie might just show up on this little old blog if you are lucky!

Looks so simple! Thanks for linking these up at Weekend Potluck. I have everything I need but the chunky peanut butter. I do have smooth and some peanuts. I might give it a try.
