Fudgy Buttons Recipe

Not all of Grandma's recipes are time-consuming--her fast fudge proves it! She stirred up a batch for us grandkids every time we visited. Now, I'm carrying on the tasty tradition for my family whenever we want a quick chocolate treat with a peanut butter twist.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking cocoa
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter; remove from the heat. Add cocoa and mix well. Stir in sugar. Add milk and stir until smooth. Add peanut butter and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper; flatten tops and shape into 1-in. patties. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.

"I am a big fan of peanut butter and chocolate. These are fantastic. You are definitely going to want to quadruple the recipe. I have been making these since 1998 and they always turn out great."

"I quadrupled the recipe and used Hersheys Dark Cocoa instead of regular cocoa. I made teaspoon sized balls, then flattened them with the bottom of a crystal salt shaker dipped in powdered sugar. I brushed off the excess sugar so it was only with in the cut crystal design, so it left a sweet little snowflake-like pattern on each button. Also, just a hint, work up the dough with your hands, it blends together much more smoothly. I'll definitely make these again!"
