Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls

I love to bake, but making candy has never been my forte. I’m not sure why, but I never seem to be very good at it.

However, this is one candy recipe that’s a cinch to make. In fact, it was so quick and easy, that I was enjoying my first taste less than an hour after I started making them. What can I say…they were hard to resist. 🙂


Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls

1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter, softened
8 ounces Wilton Candy Melts – or other candy coating of your choice

In a mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well.

Shape into 1-inch balls and place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet.
Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.

Place Wilton Candy Melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir well. Dip balls and place on waxed paper to harden.

Yield: 2 dozen
