Peanut Butter Balls


Peanut Butter Balls Ingredients
- 1 cup of soft butter
- 2 cups of crushed vanilla wafers (~ one 12 ounce package)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 cup of finely grated coconut
- 1 (1 pound) box of powdered sugar (confectioner's sugar)
- 1 cup of chunky-style peanut butter
- 1 (12 ounce) package of chocolate chops
- 1/4 cake of paraffin (in original recipe but optional) *

Peanut Butter Balls Instructions
Beat the butter in a large bowl until it is creamy. Add the crumbs, vanila, coconut, and sugar and mix thoroughly. Mix in the peanut butter with a wooden spoon. Shape into balls one inch in diameter. Place them on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 15 minutes (use a timer). CHOCOLATE TOPPING: Melt the chocolate pieces (with the paraffin if you are using it *) in a double boiler. Remove the balls from the freezer. Insert a toothpick into each ball and swirl in the chocolate to coat only the half the ball. Place on wax paper while the chocolate hardens. Store in the refrigerator or freezer

* Paraffin is an edible wax that is often added to chocolate candy to give it a glossy finish and help it remain solid at room temperature. Paraffin can be left out of this recipe but without it the chocolate will not be as glossy and it will soften more quickly at room temperature.
