My youngest DD brought this recipe home from school. It was on one her worksheets. She is making them for our Easter dinner this year. I have guessed at the preparation time and it is not including the time needed to chill the dough.

These go together in a snap! Other than the chilling time, you can have these done really fast. They are perfect when you want that little bite of peanut butter with a slight crunch. I figured it out and they only have 1 Weight Watchers point per ball. That's enough to satisfy a sweet tooth. I love the taste of cinnamon and nutmeg in these as well. My balls held together just fine. Also, I only needed 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar and that was still too much. Perhaps the added cocoa had something to do with the previous reviewer's problem with them not holding together well. I made these for Pick A Chef Spring 2009.

These are very tasty! I accidentally used too much cinnamon but they are still good! I did find the mixture to be a bit crumbly but once pressed together firmly, the balls stayed together without any problem. I didn't measure the powdered sugar, just kept adding until I had rolled them all, but I'm sure it was well under 1 cup's worth. I ended up with 18 balls from one batch. Thanks for the recipe Beverly!

Quick and easy, but with the corn syrup, I think I'll keep the added 2 T.s of plain sugar out of my next batch. They're certainly sweet enough already.
