Peanut Butter Balls

Delicious Candy
Yesterday our kitchen was turned into a candy making manufacturing facility. Grandmother and our friend, Sharon, worked long hours in making those delicious peanut butter balls. You can make the balls with a coating of chocolate or butterscotch. Both are delicious, but I have a personal preference for the butterscotch.

Here’s a few pictures I made today while watching the girls make the candy. They had lots of fun while working together and ended up with over 550 Peanut Butter Balls! I can assure you that they are delicious because I did some taste testing.

We estimate that each peanut butter ball has approximately 50 calories. That’s not bad if you stop after one or two.
