In honor of today being December 1st, and of the upcoming cookie-o-rama in our house... I present to you: Peanutty Bon-Bons! One of our favorite holiday treats. A simple little wrapped morsel of peanut butter goodness... Mmmm... The hubby can't be around these without eating a plate-full!

1 1/3 cup chunky peanut butter (split)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
10 oz almond bark
about 50 of those little "bon-bon" wrappers (like a paper muffin wrapper but way smaller!)
1) Mix 2/3 cup peanut butter and powdered sugar.
2) Roll into small balls (marble size). Place the balls in the bon-bon cups and set on a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
3) Melt the almond bark and 2/3 cup peanut butter in a double boiler.
4) Spoon melted mixture over the balls in the bon-bon cups.
5) Chill to set.
Makes about 50 bon-bons!

6. Advent calendars and little notes.
7. The hubby went grocery shopping - AND made dinner!
8. Sitting by the fire, talking about our days.
9. Good sales.
10. Skyping with Emily and Fin last night - I've been cracking up all day! (We played hide and seek with stuffed animals... Oh dear...)
