When I was a child my brothers and I would spend a great deal of time at my Grandparents’ house. With both parents working my grandma and grandpa became our babysitters. I loved visiting them even though they both smoked like chimneys. We didn’t have a lot of sweets around our house. If we were lucky we would have Dad’s oatmeal cookies or a no name brand of chocolate chip cookies but with 2 boys and a girl those treats didn’t last long. When we visited our grandparents we always knew that there was going to be something yummy. They had the fridge usually stocked with CPLUS or Orange Crush, and always had a homemade treat of some sort . My absolute favourite was my grandma’s s peanut butter balls.
I have no idea what her recipe would have been but my gut reaction is that there definitely would have been white powdered sugar and probably even corn syrup involved . THE GOOD STUFF hahaha.
I wanted to remake these and share them with you because they are holy hell delicious and super easy to make. They take no time to put together and you even get freeze time to take a break in-between 🙂
I used the best quality ingredients I could since, to be sure, there wasn’t a speck of confectioner’s sugar in sight (or in my house).
