Yummy! I made these yesterday for Christmas, and they were a HUGE hit! My batch made a little more than 60 truffle-sized balls. I did add about 1/4-1/3 cup extra peanut butter than was called for because my mixture seemed a little too dry. It may have been because I used reduced fat pb. Adding the little bit of peanut butter made it perfect! I also dipped in semi-sweet choc. chips with some shortening. Thanks for a fabulous and easy recipe!

I made peanut butter balls last Christmas and they ended up being edible but way too sweet for my taste. These turned out just perfect! I did use about a half cup more powdered sugar than was called for but only because I needed a stiffer dough to work with. I used semisweet chocolate chips to dip them in and just melted them in a double boiler with about 2 tsp. of vegetable shortening. These were really pretty drizzled with white chocolate and made great office Christmas gifts.

Wonderful recipe! I followed the recipe exactly even freezing the peanut butter balls overnight before dipping in chocolate. I had a little trouble dipping them but that's no fault of the poster. They came out looking beautiful and my family went nuts over them. Thank you for posting ~ this recipe is a keeper that I will be making over and over!

These were delish! I liked them without dipping them in chocolate. With chocolate sauce, they become sinful little treats;-) These measurements made 17 PB balls for me. I liked the idea you've mentioned of freezing them for atleast a day to set before dipping them in melted chocolate. Since I've done that before, I know it works. You could also use Hershey's chocolate syrup to dip them in if you do not want to melt chocolate(to save time, fuel and added effort). Otherwise, you can also make chocolate sauce at home like I did and use it for dipping.(I always use recipe number 26276)! This sinful delightful treat is a nice addition to have for the Christmas cookie tray. Since this is eggless, this went even better in my house since one of our very special family friend's who dropped in today, is a pure vegetarian. This was a grand finale to his lunch with us. Thank you so much for an easy and simple recipe. Definitely a keeper! Thanks again!!
