Peanut Butter Weebles

Please, now before you say–“What the heck is an Peanut Butter Weeble?’ I’ll confess. I made it up.

But hear me out…

My intentions were good. Honestly. I found a wonderful sounding Peanut Butter Egg recipe. I made it and rolled eggs for about 400 years. Ok, ok…about an hour.

It felt longer.

Anyway, I put them in the fridge to set and then read the dreaded words

“dip in melted chocolate.”

I tried to remain calm.

You need to understand that some things just don’t work out all that well for a few of us. “Dip in melted chocolate” is one of those “things” for me.

Without sharing the gory and often humiliating details–let me just say, my history with chocolate dipping isn’t good.

Oh, my father–the professional CHEF could do it magnificently.

My sister can make her own dipped marshmallows—beautifully.

My daughters, I’m certain could pull it off without blinking.

But me…

truth is, I’m a melted chocolate, “why does it always fall into the pot” flunky. Ever seen “Fail Blog?” It’s sad to watch.

So, in the interest of being an Easter candy team player and trying my best to look like I did all this on purpose, I decided to use a new approach to dipping that I prefer to call plopping. Oh, it’s new.

My original hope was that the chocolate would just gracefully glide over the pb eggs and no one would be the wiser.

But alas…

As I said, dipping chocolate and I are not exactly on speaking terms.

Being a trooper, however–I forged ahead and when I glanced back at my ridiculous work, all those little eggs began to look like a tiny army of silly men with very bad toupees.

I’m afraid the next, very natural step,

could

not

be

helped.

Sorry about the blurriness…we were laughing.

You are welcome to call yours anything you like. Even something as civilized as Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs will be fine.

But for me and mine–we know a Weeble when we see one.

  1. What a hoot!!! I love your weebles. They sound yummy & since April says they are, I’ll take her word for it. Since I don’t bake I’ve never dealt with dipping in chocolate. Except for using a chocolate fountain at our wedding. But I guess it’s not the same thing, huh?

  2. LOL some days I glad I don’t live closer cause it looks like I could eat a whole batch of those with a smile on my face, but my hips and my baby would NOT be happy with me later! πŸ™‚

  3. Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down. Oh how I used to love my weebles! I had a weeble diving board with a trampoline underneath that you chucked the weebles onto. I want to eat one of yours. They look gorgeous.

  4. Oh how cute! You know what cracks me up is even before I continued down to read the rest of the post I thought to myself, “Wow, those little dudes look like they are wearing toupee’s.” And then you went on to say the same thing. πŸ™‚ Great minds think alike my friend!!

    These look very delicious, enjoy!

    Oh, P.S. I heard you have easily weaned yourself off of Cheetos. Congratulations!

    Another P.S. after seeing April at Macey’s on Friday evening and chatting about Jordan a bit we ended up taking him back to the ER that very evening. He finally is back home now. Arrived yesterday morning. So much to catch up on with you.

    Have a great day my friend!!

  5. You’re killing me smalls… Any minute now, I’m going to try a little bit of Peanut Butter and Chocolate! I hope that I’ve done enough preparing and that Baby Chomp is ok with that! πŸ˜‰

    Sooo… you should totally and completely have a link to MythBusters on the 2nd picture, because that PB Weeble looks like that one dude.

  6. Yep, I’m with you there. ‘melted chocolate’ in a recipe always has the same affect on me.

    But these weebles are great, very easy (with your improvised chocolate method!).
    I’m definitely not going to make them. lol I’m eating ‘healthy’ for a little while yet, these would do me in. PB & choc is a fave.

  7. Lyndi’s right, that Easter PB Weeble looks just like the guy from MythBusters! I want to eat him… and his friends. πŸ™‚

  8. o-o…….. should that be 1-1/2 cups peanut butter?? LOL surely not 12 cups?? tee hee…… love this Blog… full of fun stuff

  9. Ohhh, dude. Good save! Twelve cups would totally be a peanut butter mess! Holy cow…It’s corrected now. Thank you, thank you.

  10. No, it’s not the same, because with a chocolate fountain–there is somebody with brains behind the operation. We just kinda go with it around here.

  11. Is that 1 and a 1/2 cups or One Half cup of PB..?..
    Oh and I am going to Make Santa Weebles with white chocolate Beards on them too..HEEHEE SO the tops will be hats….

  12. It’s one and one half cups peanut butter–for all that peanut buttery goodness! :]
    Please, PLEASE come back and show us your Santa Weebles! How perfect!

  13. Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!

  14. Can I just say what a comfort to uncover somebody that
    really knows what they’re discussing on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people really need to look at this and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe
    you aren’t more popular since you surely have the gift.

  15. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
