January 24th is National Peanut Butter Day this year.  I absolutely love peanut butter.  Sometimes I just east a spoonful of peanut butter as a snack.  Yum.

As a peanut butter lover, I have to say that the absolute best peanut butter recipe is Auntie Charlotte’s Peanut Butter Balls.  Auntie Charlotte was our neighbor when I was growing up in Hawai’i.  She is not a neighbor any more, she’s family.  Every Christmas she would bring over the most delicious plate of treats.  We’d politely visit and chat with her and once she left there would be a mad scramble to get to the peanut butter balls.   You may have tried peanut butter balls in the past, but until you’ve tried this recipe, you don’t know what yummy is.

Auntie Charlotte’s Peanut Butter Balls

Ingredients
1 box powdered sugar                                            1 1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine                        3 cups crushed rice krispies
12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips           1/3 block paraffin

Mix powdered sugar, peanut butter and melted butter together.

Add crushed rice krispies.  (Crush the rice krispies very fine for a better texture.)

Melt chocolate chips and paraffin in a double boiler; stirring until smooth.

While the chocolate chips are melting, roll peanut butter-rice krispie mixture into 1 inch diameter balls.

Dip peanut butter balls into the chocolate.  Set on wax paper until chocolate is hardened. 

Store in refrigerator.

Enjoy! And you may want to hide a couple of extras in the far back of the fridge {just for you}.
