Dessert Recipe for The 12 Days of Christmas

On the 9th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me....

Peanut Butter Balls, a Giveaway, and Love Redesigned by Sloane B. Collins!

Peanut Butter Balls


1 cup peanut butter

6 tablespoons butter, softened

2 cups powdered sugar

16 ounces chocolate candy coating

In bowl, stir together peanut butter and butter. Gradually add sugar, stirring until combined. Shape mixture into 1 inch balls and put onto wax paper on cookie sheet. Let stand 20 minutes in refrigerator.

Melt candy coating either on stove with low heat stirring constantly, or buy the microwavable kind (much easier). Dip and roll balls in candy coating. Let excess chocolate drip off (I use two spoons and roll back and forth like separating an egg white). Place onto wax paper. Let stand until firm. Store tightly covered in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.

*This only makes about 25, so I double or triple the recipe. 

*I like to get white vanilla candy coating and make some of each, then drizzle the tops with the opposite color of coating.

Keep refrigerated until ready to serve...I like to make a nice display for my guests. Be creative, and make sure you have plenty on hand, because these go fast.

They taste just like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.


Give American cake artist Genevieve Haywood a picture of anything, and she’ll turn it into a sweet and decadent creation. She’s not going to let hard work or competition stop her from opening her dream business. But when she’s hired as the cake artist for her cousin’s wedding in France, she never expected to run into the French fashion designer who broke her heart fifteen years ago. 

Roman Duchaine is done with living life in the fast lane. Tired of being in the haute couture spotlight, he’s moved back to the small French village where he was born and raised. 
Roman’s ready to settle down and have a family until the lost love of his life arrives for his cousin’s wedding. Seeing her reminds him just how devastating falling in love can be. 

Their fragile truce is meant to last through the wedding, yet every second together makes their attraction and long-buried feelings undeniable. But old habits and hurts die hard, and while Roman is ready to weave their lives together, Genevieve can't afford to lose herself in his shadow.

About the Author

Debut author, Sloane Burke Collins, is thrilled to be a Soul Mate author. Her novella Love Redesigned won 1st place in the Contemporary category of the 2013 Indiana Golden Opportunity contest. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, Dallas Area Romance Authors, and Contemporary Romance Writers. Since Sloane and her husband love to travel, she has vowed to write a novel set in just about every place they visit. From the wilds of Maine, to the rocky coast of Oregon, to the lush paradise of Oahu, and the rolling hills of Ireland, all of it is fodder for Sloane to craft stories of love, intrigue, and perhaps a Paranormal or two. Sloane is a fifth-generation Texan, and after a stint in Missouri and Florida, she is back home now and lives in the Dallas area with her husband of over twenty-six years, and their four rambunctious cats (all named after characters in her favorite Julia Quinn novel).
