Peanut Butter Balls
I have a friend who makes candy every year at Christmas. I used to be right in there with her but over the years I have gotten out of the practice. But, this year, I decided to revive the tradition for Thanksgiving. I made chocolate covered pretzels, Divinity (oh. my. goodness. Is there anything any better than Divinity?!?!?!), and Peanut Butter Balls. Well, the pretzels were a hit but the Peanut Butter Balls were gone in a matter of minutes so I thought I would share the recipe with y'all just in case y'all had a craving to make candy.
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use creamy and crunchy)
3 tablespoons butter (a lá Paula Deen!)
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
chocolate candy covering (I use almond bark melted in the microwave)
Mix peanut butter and butter thoroughly. Add powdered sugar and mix until it is all dissolved. Now, don't be shy y'all, get in there with your hands and mix away b/c a spoon or fork won't mix it well. Pinch off a little (1/2 teaspoon or less) and roll into ball. Place on wax paper. Once all has been rolled into small balls, let sit for about 30 minutes to firm up. Dip in chocolate candy coating and return to wax paper until dry.
I have a husband and extended family begging for more!! I can get the recipe for divinity if y'all are interested. Apparently, I am one of the the few on the face of the Earth who loves this stuff!!!
Ive had these and they are delicious.
Yer not the onliest one on the Divinity! My Mama made it and it was always great! Been a while though...so ifn ya wanna put the recipe on here, I'll give it a shot.
The filling for the peanut butter balls can be used for peanut butter pinwheels also. Use 1 lb of confectionary sugar and just enough water to make a thick dough. Roll it out THIN and spread the peanut butter mixture over it. SLOWLY roll it up and put in fridge. Use a sharp knife to cut off 1/2'' slices of the roll.
Grab a big ole glass of milk and go to town!
PB Balls sounds like how I make reeses. Little chocolate in the bottom of a paper wrapper, blob of PB and then more chocolate. Sooooooooo Good.....
But this Divinity... I've never heard of?
