Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Well, winter is here and my days at the park and going for long walks with my girls have been replaced with Christmas shopping online and baking indoors. I know this will affect my waistline in a negative manner, but what else is there to do? Today I got to bake this classic recipe with my best friend who recently had her first baby boy. Lindsay and I have been neighbors our whole lives and were even roommates in college. I can only hope our kids will now be best friends. We aren’t quite neighbors anymore, but we live less than two miles from each other so that’s pretty good!

Does this recipe even need an introduction? My sister makes these often for parties and they are always gone by the end of the night. You can make them ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator or even freeze them until you want to serve the balls. Be sure to read the tips at the end to make your ball rolling and dipping even easier. Sorry, I am not trying to sound dirty!

Directions:

In a large bowl, mix peanut butter, sugar, margarine, and cereal until combined with your hands. Form into small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Melt chocolate chips, chocolate bar, and Parafin wax over medium low heat in a saucepan. Dip the formed balls into the chocolate mixture until covered with chocolate and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to serve. Makes about 4 dozen.

Katie’s Tips:

*Find parafin wax in the baking aisle of the grocery store. Don’t be concerned that it’s also used for candle making! This makes the chocolate very shiny and smooth.

This is what the wax looks like. You use 1/2 of one bar so just use a sharp knife to cut it in half before melting.

*I found 4 oz. chocolate bars so I bought 2 bars and used one bar and about half of the other bar.

*When taking the chocolate covered balls out of the saucepan, use two forks. This helps to keep the chocolate intact.

The two fork technique. Have a cookie sheet lined with wax paper ready by the stove to placed the finished balls on.

*Start melting the parafin over medium low heat first, then add the chocolate since the wax takes longer to melt.
