Peanut Butter Balls

As promised, I wanted to share another (I know!) baked good from last weekend. More on that a little later...

The little man and I braved the mall this morning for some last minute holiday shopping. Wow. It. Was. Busy.

But I love it. Some people hate the hussle and bussle, but we made a morning out of it and then met his god momma at Panera for lunch. Can't beat Panera! I had my usual, Pick 2, Smokehouse Turkey Panini with a cup of Broccoli Cheddar Soup. The little man enjoyed macaroni and cheese with a side of blueberry yogurt.

He didn't complain.

Now we are home for the day. Last night I made up TWO pans of homemade enchiladas (one chicken, one beef) and a mean taco dip for dinner tonight. The in-laws are coming and I figured they are driving here, it's cold out, a nice hot mexi-dinner sounds good.

Maybe I'll share???

Enough of my day...bring on the peanut butter! These are like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, but homemade and much better. I give my props to Jenelle for the recipe:)


Peanut Butter Balls
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 T. butter
1 c. powdered sugar, sifted
melting chocolate

Cream butter and peanut butter together in a bowl. Slowly mix in powdered sugar. Form into small balls, place on wax paper and allow to dry (usually about 15-20 minutes). Dip in melted chocolate (white and chocolate almond bark is what we used), place on wax paper and let dry.

These freeze well, so make a batch today for your next holiday gathering...I mean, it's only 4 ingredients!

  3. Like you I love the hustle and bustle of the malls around the holidays. My mom and I always go to the mall on Christmas Eve just for the fun of it! Most people think I'm crazy :)

  8. My mom used to make these but she put rice crispies in them. They were very good. Also she used chocolate chips and wax to dip them in. I imagine that the melting chocolate has wax in it nowdays.
