This afternoon, the Province announced that the Winnipeg Metro Region has been moved to the Critical level (red) on the Pandemic Response System.  As a result of the Province’s decision, the Winnipeg Winter Club will closing the RBC Dominion Securities Arena effective 10:00 pm tonight.
 
This will mean all arena programming (lessons, Member Hockey and Skills and Drills), rentals and all general use are suspended.
 
While we don’t know a specific timeline for the length of these closures, they will be in effect for at least two weeks and then reassessed. 
Thank you for patience and understanding. We will advise as soon as programs and services can resume.
 
On behalf of everyone at the Winnipeg Winter Club, we hope that everyone stays safe during this difficult period.
 
 
Best,

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 cups powered sugar, sifted

DIRECTIONS

Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

With an electric mixer, mix peanut butter, butter and vanilla extract until light and smooth.

Add powdered sugar one cup at a time mixing thoroughly after each addition.

Take about a tablespoon and a half of dough and make it into a round ball. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Repeat with the remaining dough.

Once all balls are formed, place them in the fridge for at least one hour.

Melt melting chocolate and divide into three separate bowls.

Color each portion desired color.

Prepare a separate baking sheet or plate with parchment. This will be where you decorate your monsters.
