How To Make ez peanut butter balls

  • 1
    make the Peanut Butter Mixture using equal parts of crunchy peanut butter and confectioner's sugar. I mix by hand. add more peanut butter if the mix will not form a ball. add more powdered sugar if the mix is sticky.
  • 2
    form peanut butter mixture into balls ~ size according to preference and line them up on the foil surface.
  • 3
    melt the chocolate bark. try melting 2 or 3 segments at a time in a microwave pan, setting it at 3 minutes to start and mixing at 1 minute and testing at 15-20 seconds.
  • 4
    using a plastic fork with the 2 center tines removed, drop each peanut butter ball into the melted bark and cover completely and place back onto the foil surface.
  • 5
    let cool - dry - harden. store in covered containers in a cool dry place. can be refrigerated but I prefer the back porch.
