Peanut Butter Balls
18 Oz creamy PB
1/2 lb butter
1.5 lb powdered sugar (10x)
3/4 slab food grade paraffin wax
18oz semi sweet choclate
* if your walmart is like mine and dosnt have any of the above mentioned wax you can subsitiute that choc. dip that you nuke to melt and dip the strawberries or whatever in for the wax and semi sweet choc. . Works fine but you will need 3-4 tubs of it for the recipe above.
Mix PB, butter, and sugar. Roll into small balls & freeze, overnight if possible. Insert toothpicks (optional, but makes dipping in choc. neater). Use a double boiler and , melt wax and choc. Dip balls & set on wax paper.
I left half in the freezer while dipping to keep them firm otherwise the toothpicks fall off. I also put them back in the freeze after dipped for a few hours - overnight. Then I serve them up on a pretty platter and they don't last long!
This is a great quick recipe that kids can do. My 4 yer old did it all with no worries. I just mixed up the batter showed them how much to use to make a ball then let them go at it! So Yummy!
