Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls


Super easy, super good, and Low Carb!! The original recipe from Taste of Home is titled 'Peanut Butter Snowballs' using white chocolate. I don't have any sugar-free white chocolate, so I figured mine would be more like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. They are, but they are so much better!!
My friend, Judy Bennett, had the original recipe posted on a Facebook group 'My favorite recipe's'.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup chunky Peanut Butter (Smucker's Natural)
3 Tablespoons softened butter (super softened!)

Directions:
In a bowl, combine the sweetener, peanut butter, and butter. Since I use natural peanut butter, I had to put my mixture into the refrigerator until it was firm enough to form balls. I think an hour is good enough, if it's not forming balls easily put it back in the refrigerator for some more time.
When firm enough, form the balls, maybe 3/4 to 1 inch and place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Chill for 30 minutes or until nice and firm.
Next, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high at 30-second intervals, stirring each time until melted. Using two forks, dip balls and place on waxed paper to harden.
I have mine stored in the refrigerator at all times.
You should be able to get at least 18 to 24.

Notes:
Total carbs for the ingredients I used is 18g net carbs. This should give you 1g or less per ball depending on how many you get out of this recipe.
