      DH problem said it best, they are addictive. I made half a recipe of the peanut butter/sugar mixture and had enough for over 20 cherries. I used chocolate chips that I tempered in the microwave and eliminating the need for the shortening. These will be a hit at Christmas time. Made for Aussie Swap.

      Although it took me considerably longer than 10 minutes to make these (So, I'm old & slow & I took my time!) I did enjoy the prep, & when they were finally set out on a finger food buffet, they were one of the first things to disappear! Will definitely be making these little tasties again (& again)!
