peanut butter balls

Hi, everyone!  I hope that everyone is getting their last minute Christmas shopping and baking finished up!  I have been enjoying some time helping in my son’s class room and on his field trip this week and in between I am finishing up my baking.  I have two types of cookies left to bake and a one new candy I want to try.  So, I am very close to being done!  Is it just me or has December gone so fast this year? 

Today I am sharing another family favorite of ours, Peanut Butter Balls.  If you love peanut butter, then these are a must try!  This recipe actually made a lot of balls, I had around 6 dozen.
