I have such a fun job! I work with amazing women at the preschool but since the preschool is in a church, I work with an amazing children's staff here at the church. We had a birthday celebration yesterday for the sweetest of sweets, Christy! Another dear friend, Jenni, brought this amazing Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cream Cheese Ball. If you love chocolate, peanut butter and toasted pecans - oh my stars - you will love it! I loved it! Jenni and I are always talking recipes. I am so thankful she shared this fun new recipe with me. Be sure to add this to your holiday festivities!!
