The great thing about peanut butter balls recipes are that they are a no-bake recipe and budget friendly. So if you don’t happen to have an oven to bake and wanted or needed to bring a Homemade Christmas Treat to a party you could easily make these on the stove top. I warn you it can get a bit messy when melting chocolate for dipping the Peanut Butter Balls sometimes called buckeye balls candy. Alternatively you can switch the recipe up and instead of peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate you could make white chocolate covered peanut butter balls instead. You could […]
