To celebrate Chocolate Peanut Butter Day, I chose to make candy and cookies rolled into one. Literally!
choc pb dough
choc pb balls
These candies have bits of cookies rolled right inside. I used my own chocolate cookies to crumble but store bought work fine. If you want my cookie recipe you can find it here but leave out the chocolate chips.
Best thing its only a few ingredients!
These little candies are as much fun to make as they are to eat!

  2. Mix together milk, peanut butter and vanilla.
  3. Gradually stir in 2½ cups of the powdered sugar. Coat your hands with powdered sugar and knead dough until it reaches the desired consistency. Your dough should be firm by not crumbly.

Notes
I used my own homemade chocolate cookies for crumbs but you can substitute store purchased cookies to crumble.

  18. This is such a fun, simple and delicious recipe, Cindy! I love that I can make candy with a list of ingredients that I can pronounce instead of buying the mass produced stuff. Fuggedabout rolling these out into balls, I’m going to spoon it straight from the bowl like Liz says in her comment!
