    Sounds wonderful. A similar idea - for Christmas I was making chocolate covered pretzels and when I was down to pretzel crumbs/pieces I tossed them into my food processer, added enough peanut butter to form a ball, rolled smaller portions and dipped into the melted chocolate. No additional ingredients were necessary. These were the first treats eaten off the platter I took to work. The only change I would make if I were making them intentionally would be to use crunchy peanut butter and use unsalted pretzels.

    My mother used to make these every year for Christmas. They are a family favorite. I had lost the recipe a long time ago and my mother is no longer with me so I am very glad to have found the recipe!

    In the tradition of my mother, I make these every year for the family. While I always do the chocolate coated ones, the ones covered with melted butterscotch chips end up getting eaten first.

    this sounds delicious!! ive done something similar before and put crushed ritz crackers in the peanut butter mixture to give it a little crunch! and a way to make em look smooth is just put them in the chocolate and stick in a tooth pick to remove them and fill in the little toothpick hole with chocolate, they usually end up pretty smooth looking!

    I enjoyed the recipe, however...how many people know what measurement a box of sugar is? Most people purchase in a bag.

    I made it with Organic Maranatha brand Peanut Butter and Organic Powdered Sugar (about 3/4 of what it called for) Organic real vanilla extract (not Vanillan - fake) and no butter whatsoever. I froze the PB balls for one hour before dipping in Toll House choc chips -- and they turned out wonderful! Fun, fun. I would do it again.
