Every year around Easter and Christmas while I was growing up I can remember my (ex) stepmother's mom making these "cookies", and everyone used to fight over them. About a year ago I got to craving them again, but she has since passed away. There are a lot of peanut butter ball recipes out there, but none quite like this one. This one uses quick cooking oats (like I remember) instead of just peanut butter or rice krispies, and I, myself, like the oatmeal taste better than the others. This recipe was put together using several different recipes, but I have adjusted the ingredient amounts and directions to my liking. Dipping the balls in chocolate and paraffin wax is up to you, but I think it adds to the flavor. I have sometimes gotten over a hundred balls, depending on how big you roll them, and rolling out the balls is what makes the prep time so long.
