I took my peanut butter ball recipe and added my own touches. They are really good to me. In my photo, the white ones are the ones with chopped almonds. The chocolate ones are made the same just use chocolate chips and don't put in the chopped almonds.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These homemade peanut butter balls taste like the famous candy cups... but much better. Peanut butter balls are always a crowd favorite. This version puts a twist by coating them in white chocolate and adding chopped almonds. The almond bits are unexpected and add a delightful crunch. Added to the peanut butter filling, these are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We added a chocolate drizzle for decorating, but sprinkles would be great, too.

How To Make almond peanut butter balls

  • Graham cracker crumbs, sugar, peanut butter, almonds, and melted butter in a bowl.
    In a large bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, peanut butter, almonds, and melted butter. Mix well with your hands.
  • Dough formed into balls to chill.
    Shape into balls; about the size of walnuts. Chill until firm. I put mine in the freezer so it doesn't take long.
  • Coating chilled balls in white chocolate.
    In a double boiler, melt white chocolate chips and paraffin until smooth. Dip chilled peanut butter balls in the mixture and place on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Let sit until dried.
