Norma's Peanut Butter Balls

These are MS’s favourite at Christmas time; and a treat that we both grew up enjoying around the holidays – one of the old standards. Traditional but deliciously addictive!


6 squares Baker’s chocolate (I use semi-sweet)
1 tablespoon of cooking oil
Chopped peanuts
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
1 cup of icing sugar
1 tablespoon of soft butter or margarine
1 teaspoon of vanilla


Mix the peanut butter, icing sugar, butter and vanilla. Shape into balls and place on a waxed-paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Microwave chocolate and cooking oil; using a toothpick dip the balls in mixture and place on waxed baking sheet to dry. I sprinkle chopped peanuts on top to hide the toothpick hole. Refrigerate until chocolate is set.
