My Grandma Jane lived to be 99 years old. Every Christmas she made chocolate dipped peanut butter balls and divided them among her grandchildren, wrapped in wax paper and delivered with love. For the past several years I’ve been telling myself that I’ll whip up a batch and mail packages to my cousins for Christmas in honor of Grandma Jane. Well, guess what? This is it, this is the year—because I have that kind of time. Not really, but since I seem to specialize in coming up with good ideas that I don’t have time for, why not add one more to the holiday mix!

Hope your holidays are filled with love, laughter and the traditions that bring joy to your heart!
