I love this recipe! These bite-size balls of goodness contain two of my favourite things: a textured peanut-butter mixture in the middle with a milk-chocolate coating on the outside. One of my very first recipe posts on this blog in 2012 was this recipe in square/bar form, which you can check out here.
On a side note: it's interesting to look at how my blog, blogging style, writing, and photography has changed since I began this blog! Comparing this recipe in square/bar form to this recipe in bite-size form is rewarding and satisfying because personal growth and personal development is so important to me...and I love being able to see it here on this blog :)
Anyway.....this recipe is near and dear to my heart! I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do :)
STEP ONE: Ingredients:
1/2 cup melted margarine
1/2 cup melted butter
4 cups icing sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 1/2 cups crushed graham crumbs (I buy the pre-crushed crumbs instead of crushing myself. Time saver!)
2 cups chocolate chips (I prefer milk-chocolate, but semi-sweet is yummy too!)
STEP TWO: Mix the melted margarine, melted butter, icing sugar, peanut butter, and graham crumbs together. Don't be afraid to use your hands if necessary! Once combined, roll the peanut butter mixture into one-inch-balls. Place the balls on a lined cookie sheet (I use parchment paper), and place in the freezer until frozen.
STEP THREE: once the balls have been in the freezer and have hardened completely, melt the chocolate and coat each ball. I melt the chocolate in the microwave, and I use two forks to roll the balls. It is important that the balls are frozen, otherwise the peanut-butter mixture will fall apart. Once coated, place the balls back onto the parchment paper.
STEP FOUR: then enjoy!! These can be stored in the freezer....or eaten right away ;)
