Recipe: Peanut Butter Balls

Monday, 12 May 2014

I love this recipe! These bite-size balls of goodness contain two of my favourite things: a textured peanut-butter mixture in the middle with a milk-chocolate coating on the outside. One of my very first recipe posts on this blog in 2012 was this recipe in square/bar form, which you can check out here

On a side note: it's interesting to look at how my blog, blogging style, writing, and photography has changed since I began this blog! Comparing this recipe in square/bar form to this recipe in bite-size form is rewarding and satisfying because personal growth and personal development is so important to me...and I love being able to see it here on this blog :)

Anyway.....this recipe is near and dear to my heart! I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do :)

STEP ONE: Ingredients:
1/2 cup melted margarine
1/2 cup melted butter

4 cups icing sugar

1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 1/2 cups crushed graham crumbs (I buy the pre-crushed crumbs instead of crushing myself. Time saver!)
2 cups chocolate chips (I prefer milk-chocolate, but semi-sweet is yummy too!)

STEP TWO: Mix the melted margarine, melted butter, icing sugar, peanut butter, and graham crumbs together. Don't be afraid to use your hands if necessary! Once combined, roll the peanut butter mixture into one-inch-balls. Place the balls on a lined cookie sheet (I use parchment paper), and place in the freezer until frozen.

STEP THREE: once the balls have been in the freezer and have hardened completely, melt the chocolate and coat each ball. I melt the chocolate in the microwave, and I use two forks to roll the balls. It is important that the balls are frozen, otherwise the peanut-butter mixture will fall apart. Once coated, place the balls back onto the parchment paper.

 STEP FOUR: then enjoy!! These can be stored in the freezer....or eaten right away ;)

Happy New Year!!

Wednesday, 1 January 2014

I love New Year's Eve because it really makes me take a step back and appreciate how much we have been blessed with. Cade is in his final year of school and graduates in April, and already has an amazing job lined up and in place. I'm in my final year of my first degree, and I'll begin my second degree in Education next fall, all in addition to starting my photography business this year. 2013 went by so quickly between photography, school, travelling, marriage, and just life in general, and I find that this time of year forces me to recognize how fast life is, and how much I need to live in the moment without taking it for granted.

For NYE this year, because we've been travelling lots between Alberta and BC this Christmas season, we wanted to get away for a night and enjoy some time together so we drove to Kelowna, BC. This is one of my favourite places filled with many fond childhood memories, and more recent memories of anniversaries spent here with my hubby. Last night, after spending way too much time in the hot tub (it was a long drive!), we walked around down town and found a great little eatery where we indulged in some good food and rang in the new year. 

We're so blessed to be surrounded by this beautiful place, loving friends and family, each other, and one of my resolutions this year is to sincerely appreciate what we've already been so blessed with. I hope everyone's NYE was as romantic and special as ours!

The Nutcracker Ballet 2013!

Tuesday, 24 December 2013

It would be an understatement to say that I love the Nutcracker. My mother took my sister and I to the ballet when we were little girls and it has been one of my favourite parts of Christmas ever since. Last year we were unable to see a live performance, which made this year's Nutcracker experience all the more special. We went with our dear friends, Andrew and Robyn, and stayed at the beautiful Fairmont Palliser hotel, to which I'd never been. I adore how the storyline exemplifies the power of the imagination and how Clara's dreams become her reality all because of her active imagination! I hope that we can make this magical night a yearly tradition!

Summer Catch Up: Hanging out with German Friends!

Thursday, 14 November 2013

I just recently posted about getting together with friends we met in Australia, and how amazing it is to have everyone in one place at one time. A few weeks after that, our friend Judith from Germany and our friend from Northern Alberta (who we both met in Australia) came to visit us. It was a very quick trip, but we had a blast reminiscing about our adventures together in Australia. And of course, no visit to our city is complete without a trip to the best frozen yogurt in town!

Summer Catch Up: Camping Trip with Australian Friends!

For those that don't know, Cade and I have a pretty neat love story! Here is the short version: we met in Australia, I forgot my toothbrush here in Canada so he bought me on...and now we're married! We met some amazing friends during our stay in Australia. First we have Dallas and Jemilla. She's from Australia and he's from Canada and now they are married and living here! Then we have Tim, an amazing Australian friend who travelled here for a few months this summer and we were fortunate enough to catch him twice during his Canadian adventure. Here are a few images of a short camping trip where we all got together! I'm always amazed when people's schedules line up so a group can all be in one place at one time. It doesn't often happen, so we definitely took advantage of it while we could!

Summer Catch Up: Family Fondue

Still playing summer catch up over here on The Hartungs because I've been so busy focusing on Sheree Hartung Photography! These photos are from a night that we celebrated my father-in-law's birthday. We all went out for dinner and came back to our house for...fondue! If you haven't noticed already, I looove fondue (check here). It's so easy to quickly put together and always a crowd favourite. I've said it here before - but I have the best in-laws! I'm so blessed to have a caring father-in-law who would drop anything if I needed him. Love this family :)

Well now I'm craving fondue!! If only I didn't have to study tonight :)

Summer Catch Up: Lake date with three beautiful ladies!

I'm playing summer catch up over here on the blog!! I've been so busy building and growing Sheree Hartung Photography that this blog has taken a seat on the backburner. When I have the time, I'll continue publishing our lives here on this blog :)

I love these girls!! Jewel and Ivey have the best personalities and are seriously hilarious. We went to Henderson Lake to watch dragon boat racing...and Jewel was surprised when the boats didn't actually look like dragons, haha!! I have so much fun whenever I hang out with Brittany and her girls :)
