Holiday Cheer - Peanut Butter Balls

Peanut Butter Balls


1 pound powdered sugar
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
8 oz peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 oz chocolate chips*
½ block paraffin wax*


Mix sugar, melted butter, peanut butter and vanilla.

Roll into balls and place in refrigerator for one hour to harden

Melt chocolate chips and wax in double boiler.  Dip balls into chocolate and place on wax paper to cool.

*In place of the chocolate chips and paraffin wax, you can use the chocolate candy melts found in hobby stories in the cake decorating area. They work just as well.

I've been looking for a recipe for this! I had something like this as a child and I was recently thinking about trying to make them. You've read my mind! Thanks! :)

Great! So glad to be of help! I love these, too and haven't made them for a couple of years, but bought the stuff to do them this year!

I haven't had these since I was a teenager. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will be making some of these since I miss having some.
