Fudgy Buttons

These "candies" only take a couple minutes to whip together and kids really love them... 
not to mention I love them too :)
Like any great recipe, it all starts with melted butter...
...and cocoa!
Add powdered sugar...
...milk and peanut butter...
Form them into little patties and...Voila! You have fudgy buttons!

At this point my little girl LOVES to sprinkle sprinkles... but it adds crunch, which is not my favorite. 
It's your choice.

4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon milk
1/4 cup peanut butter

In a small saucepan, melt the butter; remove from heat. Add cocoa and mix well. Stir in sugar. Add milk and stir until smooth. Add peanut butter and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper; flatten tops and shape into 1-inch patties. Stick them in the fridge and chill for a few minutes. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
