Peanut Butter Balls

Ahh, delicious, creamy peanut butter covered in chocolatey goodness. Sounds about right, right? This recipe is always pretty much the same, but I’ve tweaked it a bit from the ones I’ve seen floating around the internet and it’s pretty delicious!

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 4 tbsp [1 stick] salted butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 bag milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp crisco/shortening

This recipe made about 33 balls

Here’s what you do:

  • Line tray or sheet with parchment paper
  • In a mixing bowl, add peanut butter, confectioners sugar, butter, vanilla and salt all together. Mix [on medium] a good minute or two, or until blended together and creamy.

Ugh, so yummy!! But can I say I LOVE my KitchenAid? Here’s the link for yours!

  • With a tablespoon or a cookie dropper, drop one by one on your parchment paper lined sheet. Store in freezer for about 30 minutes to harden.

  • Pour chips in a microwave safe bowl with a tablespoon of shortening. Melt in intervals of 10-20 seconds until fully melted. Stir between each interval to prevent burning
  •  With tongs, a toothpick or your fingers, roll peanut butter balls in the chocolate. Place in fridge until hardened.

  • Remove and enjoy!! ❤️
