Yes, but I saw different numbers, so I wasn't sure which one.

2 cups? 3 1/2 cups?

I don't keep the sugar in the bag. We put it in a tupperware container right away.

Regardless, you have the answer. What are you making?

These


Peanut Butter Ball Recipe


1 cups peanut butter, Skippy or equivalent, not natural peanut butter
3/4 to 1 full box powdered sugar
cup butter. softened
1 tsp. vanilla


Mix peanut butter, butter and vanilla with an electric mixer until well blended.

Add the powdered sugar, a little at a time, blending with the mixer until all the sugar is mixed in. The dough will be slightly crumbly.

Form the dough into 1 - 1 1/2 inch size balls by rolling the dough between your hands. Set formed balls on a plate or cookie tray.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

In a double boiler add:

12 oz. bag of milk chocolate chips, Guitard is my favorite for its flavor
2 Tbs. shortening

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Heat the double boiler to the lowest boil you can achieve.
When the chips are melted, dip one peanut butter ball into the chocolate with tooth picks. Roll the ball in the chocolate until it is well covered.

Remove the peanut butter ball with tooth picks to cookie sheets lined with waxed paper.

Once they are cool you can put them in plastic containers in the refrigerator or freezer. They will keep for several weeks

I have one more problem.
I have no shortening.
Would it make sense if I substituted with vegetable oil, and if so, how much would oil would be the same as 2 tbs of shortening?
Is it the same?

I can't believe this thread is now 3 pages long....



The box has the weight on the bottom...do the conversion.

There is no atom bomb recipe that involves powdered sugar, so eyeball it in a worst case scenario

I dont have a box. That was my problem.
They are only available in bags here, and my parents throw the bag away when they buy it and put it into containers.
