Pretzel Cornflake Peanut Butter Balls and the Long Island Medium

Hi everyone!   I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and continued or started some new traditions.

For many of us, holiday traditions make us feel warm and fuzzy and connected to the past.

Growing  up we  listened to Neil Diamond  during  the holidays,   Leather and Lace by Stevie Knicks  during X-mas 1986 or ’87, and for this year, we watched, as an entire extended family, a marathon of the Long Island Medium (Teresa Caputo) on TLC and made and ate peanut butter chocolate balls adapted from many a pinterest recipe. 

If you have not watched the Medium, you have not lived. What, you don’t believe in Mediums? Well, even if you don’t, please know that this woman is spreading the love by helping people feel better about their dearly departed.

I like to think that I am spreading the love and hopefully helping you start a new  holiday tradition by sharing these  pretzel cornflake balls.

P.S.Even if you are reluctant  to watch the Medium, please watch it and let me know what you think -you will LOVE IT!!!

Pretzel Cornflake Peanut Butter balls:

½ cups Creamy Peanut Butter

5 Tablespoons Confectioners Sugar

1 Tablespoon softened butter

3/4 cup  Crushed pretzel crumbs

1/4 cup crushed cornflakes crumbs (I used these b/c I ran out of pretzels and it made a delightful crunch!)

1/2 cup, maybe more if needed, of dark chocolate chips, melted in a double boiler or stainless steel bowl over a pot of boiling water

Take all the ingredients except for the chocolate, mix and form into one 3/4 inch balls and lay on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.

Heat up the chocolate and when melted, roll the balls in the chocolate with two spoons or toothpicks or chopsticks. Place on the cookie sheet and repeat with the rest of the balls.

Place in the freezer until chocolate hardens.
