mom's christmas treats

from the time i could remember anything, i remember my mom making these god-forsaken treats for christmas. they're made by putting rice crispies, butter, and peanut butter together in some ratio, rolling them into golf ball sized goodness, then dipping them in molten chocolate. mom did them the old fashioned way back then, using wax and the double boiler. good lord, it took her hours to make a batch. then she would pile them in some ancient tupperware tub and put them under her bed in her bedroom. she said she put them there because it was cooler than the kitchen. it was cold in her room (the coldest room in the house), but she did it because she thought she was keeping them from me.

every christmas, she would make a tub full of these things, and every christmas i would eat 50 or 60 out of the 100 that she would make. sorry, i have a sickness.

tonight, the beautiful mrs k decided she was going to make mom's treats. they turned out pretty good, the only difference being a bit softer chocolate.

all i can say is that i'm lucky i worked out hard twice today.
