Peanut Butter Balls

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve made this recipe for Peanut Butter Balls. Nor can I count how many peanut butter balls I’ve eaten over the years. Way too many that’s for certain. In fact, I had to take a 10 year hiatus from making them because I just couldn’t stomach them anymore. Even though that might have been due to the drinking beer while making peanut butter balls one year, the two don’t go together!

Back to Making Balls

A few years ago I decided to get back on the horse and make balls again for the holidays. My daughter-in-law Kim loves peanut butter and chocolate. She told me once she’d like to take a bath in peanut butter and chocolate. I said she didn’t have to go that far! That year I gave the kids an assortment of homemade candy and included peanut butter balls. Kim took one bite and said,”I have to have the recipe.” We’ve been making balls for Christmas ever since.
