Easy Peanut Butter Balls with Big Taste.
I have been making these peanut butter balls for probably 15-20 years now.
Smooth Peanut Butter and Chocolate
The peanut butter balls have a creamy peanut butter center. It is a very easy recipe to master. Peanut butter balls that have a crunchy center do not appeal to me. I like smooth peanut butter when having it on toast and for this recipe, it is no different; therefore, like a smooth peanut butter center. However, if you do like crunchy peanut butter, by all means use that instead of the smooth peanut butter for your recipe. Always make recipes the way you want to eat them.
Chilling the Filling
Once I mix the ingredients together, I do let it chill so it is easier to work with for forming the balls. In order to make the peanut butter balls a more uniform size, I use a 1 inch cookie scoop for making the balls. It is kind of hard to find a smaller cookie scoop, I have spent many a day driving from store-to-store looking for the smaller size.
Melting the Chocolate
I melt the chocolate a minute at a time until melted in the microwave, and I use waxed paper to line a large cookie sheet and drop the peanut butter balls onto so they don’t stick when chilling and setting up. Since I make these mostly in the winter time, I put them in the garage for 30 minutes to set up. They remove easily and taste great.
These peanut butter balls are sought after by my family and co-workers too. Some family members are lucky enough to have their birthdays near the holiday. That means that they get their own container of peanut butter balls that they don’t have to share with anyone. I often pair these peanut butter balls with the English Toffee and Truffles when gift giving for co-workers. Quite often, the treats do not make it home.
More recently, we have started making these quick and delicious treats too. Rolo and Pretzel Turtles. Simple and yummy!
