PEANUT BUTTER BALLS

This recipe is a sacred one for me. I have no idea where my mom got this recipe from, but she has been making these EVERY year for Christmas since I was a little bitty kid. I’ve tasted variations of these before, and I just don’t like the other kind as much as these. A Christmas without these peanut butter balls in our house, just wouldn’t be Christmas. Simple as that. These are also a good to freeze in zip lock bags so you can enjoy them through-out the year instead of only on Christmas. 🙂
