Christmas Treats: Peanut Butter Balls
Growing up Mama always made Christmas Treats that we all looked forward to.
As my children have gotten older they like to help their Grandmother with these traditional sweets. The most popular and often devoured was and is the Peanut Butter Ball, also known as the Buckeye.
My Mama doesn’t know it, but I love looking at her handwriting. It is always so pretty and when I see it I can remember Birthday cards, signed report cards, letters, and recipe cards. So when I asked her for her recipe, I had to share her card.
