Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls only require a few ingredients and they are so easy to whip up. Oh, and they’re super addicting….like chips…I bet, you can’t eat just one.
I have long wondered whether to share this with you because I do not want to bother you a lot about my private life.
But, as people say, something nice like this shouldn’t be a secret. This summer is the most beautiful summer of my life. The most beautiful thing happened … we are going to become parents of a baby. I decided to write and share with you my thoughts and feelings during my pregnancy, as a memento of this wonderful condition. I would like my child to read all this one day and to know that I loved him from the first day in my stomach and that I love him the most in the whole world.
In the evening of October 13 I felt the movements of our little angel for the first time. I thought it was because of “hot pizza,” but I was wrong. Now I’m in my week 19 and it is just the time for that sweet tickling.
OK, as I promised I won’t bother you much, and quickly moving to the main point – Today’s sweet treat.
If you have had a problem with time lately, and if you don’t have much time as I don’t, I recommend you this quick and easy sweet recipe we all worship: Chocolate Peanut butter balls.
These are super yummy, bet you can’t just eat one !
Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
- 2 cups crushed graham crackers
- 16 oz powdered sugar
- 2 sticks melted butter
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating
- Mix the graham crackers, peanut butter and melted butter together in a large bowl.
- After they are well mixed together, add in the powdered sugar, a little at a time.
- You have enough powered sugar when the mixture holds together well.
- Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or until firm up.
- Shape the dough into 1-inch balls, place the formed balls on a wax paper lined cookie tray and chill in the refrigerator again, for about 15 - 20 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate chips, or chocolate candy coating according to the package directions.
- Dip the peanut butter balls one at a time into the melted chocolate.
- Let the excess chocolate drip off, as the chocolate will pool a little when you set it down.
- Place the dipped peanut butter chocolate ball onto wax paper and let it harden.
- When all the balls have been dipped in the chocolate, place the balls in the fridge to let the chocolate set. It should take an hour or two.
- Best to store these in the freezer as well.
- If you store these in the fridge, they will become slightly soft.
- * I've never had a problem with storing them at room temperature - probably because they don't last long enough!
