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.
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.
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,
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.
