Peanut Butter Balls

For Christmas, my aunt wants me to make her some chocolate covered peanut butter balls. I was going to make them today, but I don't have a recipe. If any of you have a good recipe for them, I would be very greatful if you could share it with me. Thanks in advance.

P.S. Merry Christmas!

Here's a link to marmalady's recipe for you:

You can nix the parafin from the chocolate and use about 1/4 cup of whipping cream to thin the chocolate for dipping.

What a lucky aunt!

Good luck!

I didn't look at marmalady's recipe, but for the peanut butter centers, I have a trick that I like to do. I mix the confectioner's sugar into the peanut butter, then I mix in a bit of cold water. The water will cause the peanut butter to seize. You get a harder peanut butter center. Be careful about how much water you put in. Just add a bit at a time and mix.

Never thought of doing that, Psi! It would save chilling the pnut butter mixture to get it firm! Tx!

It's the closest I could get to the texture of the peanut butter in the Reese's Cup.
