Need I say more? let’s prepare some delicious Peanut Butter Balls….

Some Peanut Butter Ball Notes:
I highly suggest using Peter Pan peanut butter for these peanut butter balls. I’ve used other brands of peanut butter with this recipe, but PP is my favorite. I also suggest using this chocolate coating. I’ve never had any issues with it.
After hand mixing the peanut butter ball mixture for years, I’ll never go back after using this amazing piece of machinery. And I LOVE this accessory. Seriously, put them on your Christmas or birthday wish list.
I recommend putting the peanut butter mixture in the fridge for 1-2 hours before rolling. If you find that the balls aren’t rolling very well and seem to be sticky, add a little more powdered sugar and crushed cereal. I also recommend using one of these to make the balls uniform in size. Best kitchen tool ever!
