Peanut Butter Balls

Do you like Reese’s?  You will enjoy these chocolate covered peanut butter balls.  They are so easy to make.  Gowing up these were always made during the holidays.   Now this recipe is most likely 30 years old, and was made before there were candy melts.  Here we use chocolate chips and paraffin.    Paraffin is available in the canning section of your local grocery store.

    Hi, our powdered sugar does not come in boxes here in NB, Canada, only bags. How many grams or measurement can you give me to get this right? Thank you!

      A box is 16 ounces of powdered sugar.

      Hi Babar Jan. Paraffin can be found in any grocery store or the grocery section of places like WalMart. Look in the baking aisles or home canning section.

    I’m new to the cooking world so forgive me for this stupid question but…what do you mean by cooking something “over boiling water”??

    • http://www.copykat.com Stephanie

      It means using a double boiler. You could also heat the chocolate in a microwave.

      Hi jma2008. ‘over boiling water’ means you need two pots, or a double boiler (which is a pot that sits atop another pot). You put water in the bottom pot & bring it to boiling, then set the second pot (with the chocolate or whatever you are cooking or melting) on top of the bottom pot. This melts the chocolate or cooks the item (such as custard) without burning it. I don’t recommend using a microwave because it tends to heat the food too fast which ruins it.
