    I’ve never had a food processor so not sure what the first thing would be to make in it….but I’m thinking hummus…

    What a great event! Jen and Kim rock! We have a coach whose wife always makes these for us for Christmas. I look forward to that gift every year. These are too decadent!

    They look relatively simple to make at home. I can see them becoming a hit here. Thanks for sharing!

    My sister made these every single Christmas growing up – they’re her “things” – and I’ve NEVER made them! We live 1500 miles away now so I guess I need to whip some up occasionally to fill the void 🙂

    If I make a batch of these I will probably hide them so I can eat them all myself! I am a total peanut butter freak! I must have these! 🙂
