The other day, I had an excuse to make some treats. Yay! I've been trying to cut back on the treat-making, but it's hard. I chose these Fudge Puddles from Allrecipes. The dough was a bit sticky to work with, but it wasn't that bad, and they are so cute and taste delish! I did have some leftover fudge filling, but I just stuck it in the fridge and figure it will be good warmed up over ice cream sometime. These little guys were very popular and gone in no time!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2.Sift together flours, baking soda and salt.
3.Cream butter, peanut butter and white and brown sugars. Mix in egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir the flour mixture into creamed mixture. Shape the dough into 48 balls, 1 inch each. Place each ball in one compartment of a mini muffin tin. (I lightly sprayed my muffin tin with cooking spray).
4.For filling, put chocolate chips in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir in milk and vanilla, mix well until mixture is melted and smooth. Keep the stove at lowest heat while filling the shells- the chocolate sets up quickly.
5.Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately make wells in the center of each using the end of a wooden spoon or the end of a pestle. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Then carefully remove to wire racks. Use a slender dessert spoon to fill each shell with the chocolate mixture.
