Do you love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? I sure do! These Peanut Butter Balls are even better than the famous candy, and fun to make. I will warn you though, they are addicting!

You can make Buckeyes the same way, just dip the balls about 3/4 of the way up in the melted chocolate and set to dry with exposed peanut butter on top.
