Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls


Having made my fair share of Oreo balls over the years (Oreos mixed with cream cheese covered in chocolate), these seemed like a good idea to make. After all, who doesn’t like peanut butter and chocolate?

You can view the recipe I used here, although like the Oreo balls it is a pretty simple mixture of peanut butter, powdered sugar and butter. I did add a little extra powdered sugar, which at the time seemed necessary. Once I went to make the balls some of it seemed a little crumbly. But once covered in chocolate, you couldn’t tell. I mixed these up with a hand mixer. The amount was small enough that the stand mixer seemed to be overkill.

Of course these turned out great (peanut butter and chocolate, remember?) but I realized that the whole time I was comparing these to Oreo balls when in fact, what I really made was like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. If I would have flattened it a little bit it would have been almost the same.

Either way, good stuff.
