Peanut Butter Creams

We are only a week away from Christmas and I havent even posted one Christmas treat yet!  High time to change that!  And what better one to offer up than this one, Peanut Butter Creams.  My family has been eating these delicious little squares for years!  They are a favorite of my sister and I and are a Christmas must for us!  They are basically chocolate dipped peanut butter balls, but with half the hassle.  In fact my little bug did half the work this year and loved it.

Peanut Butter Creams

4 c. (1 lb.) powdered sugar
1 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/3 c. milk
1/4 c. honey
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. chocolate chips

*Combine all the ingredients except for the chocolate chips.  Mix by hand or with a mixer until combined.  Remove from the bowl and knead until smooth. (Optional, but little Bug thought it was great fun!).  Press into a 9 inch square pan.
*Melt chocolate chips and spread over top of peanut butter base.  Let cool and cut into small squares.
