Peanut Butter Balls + Nutella Balls
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1½ cups peanut butter or 1½ cups Nutella
  • 2½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups chocolate chips or melting chocolate
  1. Beat butter, vanilla, salt and peanut butter or Nutella together until smooth.
  2. Mix in powdered sugar. The mixture will be slightly crumbly.
  3. Roll into 1 in sized balls and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet. Stick a toothpick in the center. Chill for at least 30 mins.
  4. Once chilled and hardened, get your dipping chocolate ready.
  5. If you are using melting chocolate, follow the instructions on the bag. Usually this means heating in a microwave safe bowl for 20 seconds at a time until melted. If you are melting chocolate chips, then you can also do this in the microwave or a double boiler. (If you do not have a double boiler, then you can use a metal bowl fitted snuggly on top of a sauce pan of boiling water. Just be careful, because the bowl gets hot.)
  6. Use the toothpicks to hold the balls as you dip them in the chocolate. You can do these "buckeye" style and leave a little bit of the peanut butter peaking through or you can completely submerge them.
  7. If you would like, roll in coconut or nuts or decorate with sprinkles. Place back on wax paper and chill in the fridge until chocolate is hardened.
  8. Once chocolate is hardened, serve and enjoy!
