Are you looking for a sweet treat for your Valentine this year?
If so, skip that crummy box of Russell Stover’s Chocolates & make these homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls instead……
Because everyone knows that peanut butter & chocolate are a match made in heaven!
Seriously, your Valentine is gonna love you forever!!
My dad made these peanut butter balls a couple weeks back & the kids and I have been gobbling them up!! We’ve been keeping them in the freezer & I’ve been treating myself to a couple in the afternoon with a cup of coffee! DELICIOUS!
The recipe was found on HERE on this youtube channel.
1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
12 oz of milk chocolate chips
1 Tbsp all-vegetable shortening
In a large mixing bowl add unsalted butter, creamy peanut butter, vanilla, & powdered sugar. Beat ingredients until mixture is smooth & creamy. Place in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Then remove & roll peanut butter mixture into balls. Return balls to refrigerator.
On stove top, melt chocolate chips & shortening over simmering water. Once melted, use forks to roll the peanut butter balls in the chocolate until thoroughly coated. Transfer balls to wax paper to let chocolate harden.
Store chocolate peanut butter balls in refrigerator or freezer until time to serve. Enjoy!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Terrific Tuesday!!
