1 1/2 cups
dry milk powder
I took this recipe with me on vacation to share with my 5 yr old. They turned out terrific! We rolled them in Honey roasted Wheat Germ, they tasted just like the ones I had as a kid. My only suggestion is to chill the mixture before rolling. It was hard for my son to keep the round shape, due to the stickiness.
These tasted great but oozed into blobs instead of staying round. I chilled the dough for several hours before rolling but as soon as it touched our warm hands they turned to goo. I used creamy Jiff. Maybe a different peanut butter would work better?
I made this and then after the peanut butter balls were done I decided to dip them in melted chocolate chips. They were a BIG hit.
I remember making these in 1st grade as a class project and always enjoyed them after that. I love them and my son does too.
I felt like I was just having peanutbutters on spoon(well, a sweet peanut butter)I added more nuts and chocolate chips in them and they tasted better. ?Warning: very, very peanutbuttery.
I just made these and was disappointed. I was expecting a creamy ball but these are gritty. Did I do something wrong? I didn't have to chill before rolling; mine were fine to roll right away. I also rolled some of them in powdered sugar hoping to add a little sweetness, but it didn't work. I rolled the rest in regular sugar thinking that at least maybe it would keep them from sticking together. These were very easy to make, I just didn't like the gritty texture.
These are wonderful. I added 1 more cup of powdered milk, froze them and dipped them in chocolate.
These are a good little snack. I like that they are fairly healthy. I used a natural peanut butter but added a few milk chocolate chips to help bind the mixture together as well as add a little flavor. These make a great base if you wanted to add another type of chip or nut to the recipe. Make sure to refrigerate these to set as they can be a little soft.
