Peanut Butter Bon Bons

One of my fondest memories growing up was going to my Grandma Mary's house in Woodstock for Christmas.  Not really because Christmas was a big deal there, but because she and my grandfather owned a family restaurant that they actually lived above for as long as I can remember.  Grandma Mary was always baking up something delicious.  I remember sitting at her kitchen table while she made what seemed like hundreds of peanut butter balls.

A year ago a former teacher from my school made peanut butter bon bons for a school function and for the first time in  years I was taken right back to my childhood.  They tasted EXACTLY like Grandma Mary's PB balls.  After pleading for the recipe I finally got it and put it into action yesterday!  I think Grandma Mary would be pleased with the results!

Going into the freezer.

  1. I heart PB Balls. I made Nutter Butter Cookie Balls and with the Food Processor doing its thing, they are almost like normal PB Balls.
