I don’t remember where this recipe came from but peanut butter and chocolate are almost always winners here. The kids have fun rolling the balls and dipping them in the chocolate. Eating them is lots of fun too 🙂
Peanut Butter Bites
- 1 (18-ounce) jar creamy peanut butter
- 2 1/2 c. confectioners’ sugar
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
Use a mixer to beat the peanut butter and sugar together until smooth and stiff. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Shape the peanut butter mixture into 20 (1-inch) balls and place on a waxed paper-lined sheet tray. Place the tray in the freezer for 1 hour.
Carefully melt the chocolate chips. Remove chocolate from heat. With 2 forks, carefully dip the chilled peanut butter balls 1/2 way into the chocolate, let excess drip off, and lay onto the waxed paper-lined sheet tray.
With a fork, swirl some decorative chocolate across the top of each bite. Place in the refrigerator for the chocolate to set and the peanut butter to harden.
