Nut Chocolate Balls Recipe
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 6 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
- 1 tablespoon shortening
- 2 cups chopped walnuts
step 1: In medium bowl, mix peanut butter, confectioners' sugar and honey until blended. Knead with hands if necessary.
step 2: Shape into 3/4 inch balls; place in jelly roll pan. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
step 3: When balls are firm, heat chocolate and shortening until melted and smooth under low heat. Remove pan from heat; let chocolate cool slightly. Carefully dip balls into chocolate mixture, then into chopped nuts to coat. Place on waxed paper-lined pan; cover loosely and refrigerate until coating is set- about 1 hour. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
