Hi y'all! I'm Jamie and I blog over at Love Bakes Good Cakes. Don't let the name fool ya - it's more than just cakes and sweets. I share family-friendly meals, desserts and an occasional free printable. 

First off, I would like to thank Pamela for inviting me to share a recipe over at her place! One of my absolute favorite things ever is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I mean, doesn't everyone love them?! I love anything and everything with peanut butter and chocolate. Many years ago, I set out to make the perfect homemade peanut butter balls and now, I have a recipe I'm particularly fond of. During Easter, you can also shape the peanut butter mixture into egg shapes and have Peanut Butter Eggs.

This recipe is super quick and requires no cooking - and is a great recipe for kids to help with!

Peanut Butter Balls
Yield: approximately 25 balls

½ cup peanut butter
3 tbsp. butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 pkg. (16 oz.) CandiQuik

In a medium bowl, combine the peanut butter and butter until thoroughly combined. Gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper. Let stand about 30 minutes. Melt the CandiQuick according to package directions. Using a fork, dip the balls into the CandiQuick, allowing excess to drip off. Place the covered balls back on the waxed paper. Let stand until the coating is set. 

I hope you enjoy!
