I always associate this peanut butter balls recipe with the holidays. Growing up my mom would always make these and other candy like turtles and pretzels during Thanksgiving and Christmas.
It’s been a family tradition for decades. Anybody who tries them always wants more.
My moms coworkers always have her make batches of these this time of year up until the New Year.
This recipe makes about 3 dozen depending on how big you make the balls. You will have plenty to snack on for a couple of days or you can give some away.
They make great gifts! Get some cheap pretty tins and you have a great and tasty homemade gift!
It won’t cost much for all the ingredients and it makes at least 3 dozen so you can divide them up per person. This is way cheaper than buying something and you will definitely impress the gift receiver with these.
At least I would be impressed I love homemade gifts and more if I can eat them!
Do you have any holidays traditions or recipes? I would love to know what they are. If you make this recipe let me know how it turns out. I hope you enjoy it!
