Who’s Hungry? Christmas Recipes to Elevate your Dessert Plate

Peanut butter logs

Here at Gordon Water Systems, we know that although we certainly need it to survive and thrive, man cannot in fact live on water alone. And what better time to focus on food than the holiday season! With that in mind, we’d really love to share with you some recipes that we will be digging into on our own Christmas dinner tables.

Peanut Butter Logs

6 C Powdered Sugar
1/2 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 lb Butter (room temp)
1 T Vanilla
4+ T Peanut Butter
12 oz bag of Chocolate Chips

  • Mix up everything minus the chocolate chips in a LARGE bowl (Hands are kind of fun)

  • Chill the logs and balls for about an hour or two.
  • Melt the chocolate chips (slowly) in a pan or microwave and spoon over the logs and balls as you like.
  • After the chocolate hardens cut the logs into slices that make for good bite sized treats.
  • Keep chilled until ready to serve.
  • Eat them to your heart’s content
