This recipe has been in the family for as long as I can remember, I have no idea of its origin. There are many peanut butter ball recipes on this site, but each is a little bit different, so thought I might as well add my version too.
I grew up making these as a Christmas candy. But they are fun to shape into an egg shape at Easter too.

How to Make Peanut Butter Balls

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together sugar, butter, nuts and peanut butter.
    Form into 1" balls, place on wax paper lined cookie sheets and freeze for at least one hour. (can be frozen for a couple weeks)
    Melt chips and wax in double boiler, dip balls and place back onto wax paper. Let dry and harden. Store in cool place. They do freeze well.
    *I have found white chocolate chips are really good on these too in place of the chocolate and butterscotch chips.
    *parafin wax - does not have to be used, it just adds a nice shiney coating and the candy don't melt in your hand as easily with it either.
