baking in the dark

So, I just spent three hours making peanut butter balls in the dark.

Why in the dark, you ask?

Because around 6:30pm, the power on our block went out, just as I was starting to roll the peanut butter balls!

Dave sat there and we got them all rolled out by flashlight, then he helped me light the stove and I stood there and dipped them all. How did I hold the flashlight and do this at the same time? I fashioned myself a lovely head lamp using my headband - I tucked the small flashlight under it and it worked perfectly! I'm very glad that none of you could see me like that though!

Here's the recipe and pictures to go with it!


1 box graham crackers, crushed
1 lb jar creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup soft butter

Combine all ingredients. Can't get any easier than that!

12oz bag of your favorite chocolate chips
1/2 bar parafin wax

Melt chocolate chips and wax in double boiler. Roll peanut butter dough into bite sized balls. Dip in chocolate and set on waxed paper to harden.
