I omitted the cherries, walnuts, and coconut. I thought they were delicious but I will use a little less powdered sugar next time.

Way too sweet, if I try them again I will reduce the 2 cups confectioners' sugar to maybe 1 1/4 cups. Irene

I placed the peanut butter mixture in the freezer and let it solidify. I used a Tbsp scoop to form the balls, then used chopsticks to dip them in the chocolate. This made it easy and minimized the mess.

this recipe is just awesome, I cant keep them long enough on the tray! Usually my son doesnt like sweet stuff but he always wants one of these. They are rich but very good, also looks very professional so great for bake sales too. When I make this I make it X4 (big family), so I added one less cup of confectioners sugar and they were just right. I made the balls bigger then what the recipe called (about the size of a small plum). and I added a bit more cherries and less walnuts and they were just awesome

Our family loves this recipe! My sister-in-law has made it a family tradition. Last year, we weren't able to get together so I was very excited to find this recipe so I could make them on my own! I do NOT like cherries, but they are chopped and add just a hint of flavor. It sounds crazy to add all these different flavors together, but it is oh so delicious! You can make a batch and keep them in the freezer and just pull them out a couple hours before needed! Yummy goodness!

Very tasty and presentable! i didn't have all the ingredients so I substituted raisins for the maraschino cherries and I used a mix of almond/hazelnut butter with a few tablespoons of peanut butter (as I didn't have enough pb!). Made it for my son and his friend but it ended up pleasing the adults even more!

Wonderful recipe. I didn't have cherries so substituted raisins. I'm going to try them again today with craisins. Also, for half the batch, I dipped just one side of the ball in chocolate and coconut. Made for a nice varied appearance and decreased the richness slightly. I'm going to try half in white chocolate today.

These are fantastic! Ingredients can easily be omitted or added depending on your mood, taste, or whatever you have on hand. I ate my small trial batch myself. It's not overly peanut buttery which is excellent because I don't like an overload of peanut butter. I'll definitely make, experiment, and share this recipe. Thank you!
