Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls only need several ingredients and they’re really easy to make. They really do make an ideal dessert treat for the family, as well as to give out as gift treats.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls Ingredients
2 cups of creamy fresh peanut butter
3/4 cup of softened salted full cream butter
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 3/4 cups of powdered sugar
Dark Chocolate Candy Coating
Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls Directions
Combine the butter, the peanut butter, and the vanilla all together into a large-sized bowl.
Once they are very well combined together, incorporate the powdered sugar, making sure to add just a little each time. You may have to put in a little more or a little bit less powdered sugar. You’ve got adequate powdered sugar as soon as the mixture binds together well in a single large ball inside your mixing dish.
Cover and then allow it to sit inside the fridge for around 15-25 minutes until the mixture firms up. (You may also cover securely and then refrigerate for as much as A couple of days.)
Form the dough directly into 1 – inch balls.Cover and then refrigerate once again, for around 15-20 minutes. Missing this step would make the dough very difficult to dip into the actual dark chocolate.
Liquefy the dark chocolate based on the package instructions.
Dip the actual peanut butter balls one-by-one into your melted dark chocolate. Allow the extra dark chocolate to flow off, since the dark chocolate may pool a bit once you place it down. Position the dipped peanut butter dark chocolate ball upon wax paper and then allow it to firm up.
Chill until such time as you are ready to serve. Additionally chill all of them just a little prior to packaging them up as gifts.
