And So This is Christmas

Christmas has came and gone..

All the stockings are empty and the leftovers are in the fridge. The traditions that my family holds near and dear where just as special as always. One of my favorite traditions my family has is making homemade candy. One of our favorites is Peanut Butter Balls.

This year I would love to share this holiday tradition with you all!



  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar

  • 1⁄2 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine, softened

  • 1 lb dipping chocolate or 1 lb confectioner's coating


  1. Stir together powdered sugar, peanut butter and butter until well mixed.

  2. Shape peanut butter mixture into 1 inch balls, placing them on a baking sheet covered with waxed paper.

  3. Let balls stand for 20 minutes until dry.

  4. Melt the dipping chocolate or confectioners' coating.

  5. Drop balls one at a time in melted chocolate.

  6. Using a fork, remove from the chocolate, letting excess chocolate drip off.

  7. Place back on the waxed paper.

  8. Let stand until dry.

  9. Store tightly covered in a cool dry place.
