Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Recipe Information


  • 3 cups (700 ml) creamy peanut butter
  • 4 sticks margarine
  • 2 pounds powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
  • 2 12 oz (336 grm) bags chocolate chips
  • 1 stick canning wax
  • Beat peanut butter and margarine well.
  • Gradually add powdered sugar, vanilla and salt.
  • Chill in refrigerator until firm (about 1 hour).
  • When firm enough to hold shape, shape peanut butter mixture into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with plastic wrap.
  • In double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and wax.
  • With a toothpick, dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate mixture and return to cookie sheet.
  • Chill until set. I chill them in the freezer and when they are set, put in a covered bowl or plastic bags and store in the freezer. They are wonderful!
This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law. It is a great Christmas candy.
