This is a great candy for children to make. Delicious and great for the holidays.


  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 lbs Confectioners sugar
  • 2 (12 oz) bags of semi-sweet chocolate chip
  • 1/4 lb paraffin wax
  • 1 (18 oz) jar peanut butter or Peter Pan Honey Peanut Butter


Step 1

Note: Peter Pan Honey Peanut Butter gives the candy a honeyed taste but regular peanut butter works fine.

Step 2

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and peanut butter together. Stir in powdered sugar. Take off the stove and let cool until the mixture can be handled. Shape into little balls.

Step 3

In a fondue pot or double boiler, melt the chocolate and wax together. With a fork or skewer, dip the balls in the chocolate and place on wax paper until cooled and firm. Store in a closed container in a cool, dry place.
