PEANUT BUTTER BALLS
These Peanut Butter Balls have always been a part of my family since I was a kid. My Grandma used to make them for us whenever we visited her and Grandpa. This is a very easy recipe that she taught me. I was about 8 years old the first time I made these delicious balls! Now, that I am an adult and have kids of my own, I make sure that my kids get to experience a bit of my childhood. Preparing these balls is a bonding moment for us. What they love the most is the part where we dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Oh man, I love watching their faces, full of joy and innocence. Anyway, make this your bonding moment as well. I am 100 per cent sure that you and your kids are going to have so much fun. Enjoy!
