Peanut Butter Balls

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by kellib626

There are lots of recipes for these out there, but this one came from my grandma, and is the best one I've tried. I've found that grating the paraffin wax with a grater, melting it separately then adding it to the melted chocolate is easier than trying to melt them together. Enjoy!

I had all of the ingredients in this recipe already oh hand, so my daughter (she's 4) and I just had to make them! They tasted very good, but were kinda aggravating to make. Seems as though the peanut butter mixture and cereal wouldn't ball up like I wanted them to; they just kinda crumbled up. I did get them to ball up though, just had to work with them a lot. The crumbliness made it difficult to dip in the chocolate too...It could have just been me though; someone else might have great success with them. They did taste really good though!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!!! :)
