These go together in a snap! Other than the chilling time, you can have these done really fast. They are perfect when you want that little bite of peanut butter with a slight crunch. I figured it out and they only have 1 Weight Watchers point per ball. That's enough to satisfy a sweet tooth. I love the taste of cinnamon and nutmeg in these as well. My balls held together just fine. Also, I only needed 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar and that was still too much. Perhaps the added cocoa had something to do with the previous reviewer's problem with them not holding together well. I made these for Pick A Chef Spring 2009.
These are very tasty! I accidentally used too much cinnamon but they are still good! I did find the mixture to be a bit crumbly but once pressed together firmly, the balls stayed together without any problem. I didn't measure the powdered sugar, just kept adding until I had rolled them all, but I'm sure it was well under 1 cup's worth. I ended up with 18 balls from one batch. Thanks for the recipe Beverly!

<p>I am a mother of 5 children who certainly keep me busy: In my free time I love to read and to cook for my family. I just wish sometimes they weren't so picky... I have a DBF of 7 yrs who is a worse picky eater than the kids. I have been a member of zaar since 2002, but have only in the past 2 years been coming here daily. I am now addicted to this site!! My son comments that I spend so much time looking at recipes that I will never be able to make them all...so whats the point: I love making new recipes, so we rarely have the same thing twice, too often. <br /><img src=<a href= alt= />http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=<a href= alt= />http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=<a href= alt= />http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
