Ok, my heart literally stopped at the picture where Rubys is looking up with all the curley ribbon on her lap. OH MY!

PS, the buckeyes might be an Ohio thing; I'm not sure. They are after our state nut "A Buckeye" however in candy form they are delish. PB wrapped in chocolate...how could it go wrong!

This is how we made them:
1 lb. peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 lbs. powdered sugar
Combine. Mix by hand and form into balls the size of a "buckeye". Put onto cookie sheet, stick a toothpick in, and refrigerate. After they were chilled I melted Chocolate Almond Bark then just dipped them so the top of the PB was still showing! YUM YUM!

I love making homade ornaments! My favorite one I've made is really easy! All you do I'd get clear ornaments take the top off and buy the packs of paper that's all crinkled up and cut into tiny strips and stuff them into the ornament with a pencil then pit the top on and tie with colored ribbon. I put our initials on the ball by using sticker letters! So easy and fun!
