How to store peanut butter balls
Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Tips on how to make peanut butter balls
- Chilling the balls helps them to be less sticky when rolling, and the chocolate will set up faster once dipped.
- Melting chocolate is always the best Wiltons chocolate of Ghiradelli wafers. But you can use chocolate chips I just recommend using Ghiradelli.
- Do not get water in your chocolate or it will seize up.
- You can also use a toothpick to dip the balls in chocolate, can be a little messier but still works.
- Once the balls are dipped into the chocolate make sure you tap the excess off on the side of the bowl.
- Use dark chocolate or milk chocolate whichever you prefer.
Can you freeze peanut butter balls?
Yes, you can, I recommend adding a layer of wax paper or parchment paper in between the layers. Thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
