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.
my mom used to make these when I was a kid. I found the original recipe this year. It was an old cut out from a newspaper. I made these for my son this year and he loved them! A second generation recipe :)
super simple and fast! Great for holiday platters and delicious too. melted chocolate instead of powdered sugar works great with them too! thanks for the recipe!
You'll love these if you love peanut butter - I did, they are really crunchy and tasty. I added some cocoa to the castor sugar to roll the balls in. However, the balls didn't hold together all that well so we should get our heads together as to what binding ingredient to add without detracting from the lovely, crunchy flavour.
