Superbowl Party: Peanut Butter Haystacks

This recipe comes with two warnings: 1) it doesn't make nearly enough and 2) if you decide to set them by placing them on cookie sheets in the cold winter air, even plastic wrap will not deter squirrels from eating several of them. I'm serious. They're lucky they're so cute - I was not happy to find little bite marks and missing pieces! Anyway, they're divine and super easy, and they taste just like the ones my aunts always made when I was little. Woohoo!
