SIMPLE No Bake Peanut Butter Balls

SIMPLE Peanut Butter Balls

Peanut butter filled chocolate balls.  Is there anything better?

Be sure to use a commercial peanut butter like Skippy or Jif for this recipe.  Natural peanut butter, which just contains peanuts and sometimes salt and sugar, makes a filling that’s too runny, which will end in disasterous results.

Select either milk or dark chocolate chips.  They can easily be melted in the microwave, just be careful not to use full power.  Somewhere between 50-70% power will melt the chocolate without cooking it.

Make some room in your freezer, because these peanut butter balls need to firm up before taking their chocolate bath.

Once firm, use a toothpick or a fork to roll the ball in the melted chocolate, completely covering it.
