These amazingly easy (and sooooo delicious) Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls are a welcomed treat every holiday season!
I’ve been making these peanut butter balls for friends and family every year since my early twenties. I realized recently it has been THREE long years since I’ve made them and knew I couldn’t go another year without them (never missed a year until 3 years ago!).
This recipe is different from any other I’ve come across because it includes coconut, graham cracker crumbs and chopped pecans… so good!!!
I have a few heartstrings attached to this recipe because I literally grew up eating these pretty much every holiday season. My childhood friend’s grandmother (Mrs. Morris) made them every Christmas and they were one of my favorite treats. When I was 9 years old, I asked her for the recipe.
She handed me the recipe from her recipe box and I wrote it down on a piece of notebook paper to take to my mama. Mama started making them for me every Christmas after that.
In my early twenties I asked my mom for the recipe so I could start making them for holiday gift-giving. She gave me back the same piece of notebook paper I wrote on when I was 9 years old!
I hope you, your family and friends love these peanut butter balls as much as I have over the years. Enjoy!Print
