Peanut Butter Balls – YUMMY!

I make Peanut Butter Balls every year

{would make it more, but my girlish figure would explode}.  Actually, I make them a couple times during the holidays now.  A certain little person loves to eat Peanut Butter Balls as much as I do apparently.  They just don’t last in our house anymore.

They are so delicious!!

I got this Peanut Butter Ball recipe from one of the gals I worked with years ago when I was nursing in British Columbia.  And boy, I’m so glad I did!!

These are wonderful treats to make for cookie exchanges or for teacher treats.  I mean, who doesn’t like Peanut Butter Balls coated in fluffy coconut? (other than those who are allergic to PB of course)

In saying that, this is such a great dessert dish …

And way easy to make!!!
