I saw this recipe back around Easter and have wanted to try it ever since. Thank you Vanilla Sugar Blog!! Since it’s not Easter, and I couldn’t really make them look like eggs, we are just going to call them balls. They are sinful, crunchy, sweet and rich. You will eat one, then you will feel full and say you don’t want another one, but you will be back for another. I guarantee it. Here’s how it went down!
Take out of the fridge. (It will look just like it did when it went in. Just more firm.)
Roll into a ball shape or whatever shape you want. Go crazy. You could make ovals, or spheres, or circles, or logs.
The world is your oyster!
They are good to eat right now, but chocolate will make’em even more teriffical!
Melt chocolate in a double boiler.
A bowl of melted chocolate. I’m gonna need a moment.
Ok, I’m back. Dunk’em in the chocolate and coat well.
Back in the fridge until their yumminess has solidified.
Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls of Yumminess
12 ounces high quality chocolate
1½ cups crunchy peanut butter
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
½ cup plain panko crumbs
Pinch of sea salt
Mix the peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, panko, and salt together in a large bowl. Check to make sure it is sweet enough. If you want to make it sweeter; just add a little more powdered sugar and mix it in well.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and put that bad boy in the fridge for at a few hours at the very minimum.
Time to roll these boys into balls. We are getting much closer to eating them. Once rolled; put them on a tray covered with parchment paper and chill again.
Get your chocolate melted while the peanut butter balls are chilling in the fridge.
In a double boiler, carefully melt the chocolate (set a heat proof bowl on top of a saucepan with an inch of boiling water – don’t let the bowl touch the water).
You can start dipping when the chocolate is melted. Drop a couple of the peanut butter balls in the melted chocolate and coat well. Place the coated peanut butter balls on your prepared tray. When done place tray in the fridge and let firm up.
Eat! Do it now. SO GOOD!
