Peanut Butter Balls
- In a mixing bowl stir together peanut butter and butter. Gradually add powdered sugar, stirring until combined. Shape into 1-inch balls; place on parchment or waxed paper. Let stand until dry (about 20 minutes).
- Chop candy coating. Place in a heavy saucepan, cook and stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Cool slightly. Dip balls, one at a time, into coating. Let excess coating drip off peanut butter balls. Place on parchment or waxed paper; let stand until coating is firm. Store tightly covered in refrigerator. Makes about 30 pieces.

I just want to know how long they can be frozen for?

my aunt makes them and my family could never seem to get the right but this recipe was a very close second to them and made my family smile when I let them try some.

These treats are very, very nice and pretty ease to make, the only thing I would change is putting the balls in the freeser for a couple of minutes to firm up as when I put them in the chocolate coating they started to melt a little.
