Peanut butter and chocolate are two ingredients that ALWAYS go together! When I was growing up, my Great Aunt June used to make these peanut butter balls and then coat them in chocolate. Of course, we devoured them as soon as the chocolate had set up! In more recent years, I was given a recipe (by my friend Leslie) that had more of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup texture/flavor. Great Aunt June’s recipe is still good… but who can resist Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups?!!? I decided that Leslie’s recipe would be my go-to recipe for Peanut Butter Balls from there on out!
I know, I know… this is a candy, not a cake! Well, guess what? I do so much more than just cake! I usually make peanut butter balls, along with several other candies, to go in the Holiday baskets I make up each year.
