Peanut Butter Chews
Can't believe I haven't put this recipe on here yet. These are my husband's (and now my children's) favorite.
1 c. powdered milk
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. corn syrup
2/3 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. milk chocolate chips
Mix well until uniform consistency, adding chocolate chips only when other ingredients are mixed well. Roll into small 1/2" to 1" balls and chill. Or roll into a long tube like a snake inside of plastic wrap, chill, and cut into pieces.
If you are using the very fine powdered milk from the cannery, only use 1/2 c. powdered milk.
Note: All of these ingredients are things you could keep in your food storage so I have these as an easy treat or comfort food that you could make without baking or refrigerating in an emergency. I know if there was an emergency and we were living off our food storage for whatever reason, these would cheer my family up for sure.
