Peanut Butter Balls

Christine Whisenhunt


Ok, these aren't cookies, but I used to make them to include in my Christmas goodie packages too. These are SO GOOD! Who doesn't like chocolate and peanut butter?!?!

Note: 2 hours of the prep time includes chilling.

How to Make Peanut Butter Balls


  1. Mix first 6 ingredients. Roll into 3/4 inch balls and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. When balls have been chilled: Melt chocolate and shortening in a saucepan. Use a toothpick to dip them into the chocolate. Let excess drip off. Place on wax paper. Refrigerate 10-15 minutes, until chocolate has hardened. Remove from wax paper and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will keep this way for up to 2 weeks.
