Homemade Reese’s

I love chocolate. And I love peanut butter. And let’s not forget salt. When I was young, my mom used to make these delicious little balls of peanut butter and chocolate goodness that contain absolutely nothing healthful. But I firmly believe inhomemade reeses all things in moderation and eating these once a year—whether that’s Halloween or Christmas—certainly won’t kill you; though they’re so addictive they might put you in a sugar coma! Consider yourself warned.

These make a great gift at the holidays, along with an assortment of other handmade candies.

* Peanut Butter Balls * 

12 ounces crunchy peanut butter (not the “natural” kind that separates)

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

16 ounces powdered sugar

They can be refrigerated afterwards so they set up quicker, but if they're consumed within 2 days or so they don't have to be refrigerated. Especially this time of the year when it's cold, no worries about them melting.

Do they need to be refrigerated after they are done? I'm trying to find recipes for things that don't need to be kept cold so I can package them and give them as gifts in baskets with other canned/baked goodies.
