    I just re-posted this on my FB site…saying “What a great way to preserve peanut butter!”
    Enjoyed reading your post so much, and the recipe looks incredible.
    When I was little, my mom used to make Bourbon Balls every Christmas. I hated the boozy taste. Now, well, she’s been gone for years and I miss so many things about her. Wish I had one of those Bourbon Balls now.
    I am going to make your recipe as a tribute to her…
    Thank you for inspiring me ~

    What’s an 11.5 chocolate bar? lb? oz? kg? Just wondering ’cause I want to try these out!

    December 17, 2010
    • I used 11.5 ounce bags of chocolate chips. But if you’ve got a chocolate bar that you really like, you can weigh out 11.5 ounces of it (make sure to chop it into small pieces so that it melts easier).

      December 17, 2010
    • It’s 11.5 ounces of chocolate. I used bags of really good chocolate chips which are sold in 11.5 ounce bags. But you can use 11.5 ounces of chopped chocolate bars or discs.
