This is a super, simple recipe for those days when you need a little something sweet without having to turn on the oven on a hot summer day.
Have kids who like to cook, bake, or just have an interest in starting to do things in the kitchen? These peanut butter balls are the perfect thing for them to make. It’s simple enough for them to do everything on their own!
These peanut butter balls go waaaay back in our family. I was asking my sisters this week how long we think this recipe has been around. Conclusion- a LONG time! 🙂 We, as little kids, used to make this easy recipe!
I remember when we needed a quick snack, someone would say, let’s make peanut butter balls! (Or another quick, no bake recipe we made on the spur of the moment were these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars that taste just like a Reese’s!) It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s delicious. Our Mom was very gracious in allowing us do stuff on our own in the kitchen when we were learning how to cook and bake. We probably made more work for her and maybe she cringed watching us at times, but she always willingly let us try out new things and recipes. Thanks Mom!
