Dipped Peanut Butter Logs Recipe

Nibbling on my nutty confections has long been a Christmas tradition. Even after our seven children moved away, they'd still ask me to send batches to them each December.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 3-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3-3/4 cups (10 ounces) flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 8 squares)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Chill for 1 hour or until firm enough to shape.
  • 2. Shape into 2-in. logs; place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth.
  • 3. Dip one end of each log into chocolate; allow excess to drip off or drizzle chocolate over logs. Return to waxed paper-lined sheet; chill until chocolate is set. Yield: about 4 dozen.

"Was something left out of the directions? You state simply to "shape into 2" logs." Do you mean 2" diameter? And then cut into 48 pieces?"
