Holiday Peanut Butter Chocolate Candies

What better way to make a Holiday more special than making some homemade peanut butter candies dipped in chocolate? You are sure to make someone very happy with these easy no cook, no bake candies.

Holiday Peanut Butter Chocolate Candies



Whether it's Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Game Day or Christmas, you can shape this no bake peanut butter delicious candy into whatever you like.



Making these homemade are so special. They look so adorable in Easter baskets, in Christmas tins and they taste outstanding!



Today I made some for Valentines's Day and some for Easter in egg shapes.










I really love how easy this no bake, no cook candy is. I highly recommend using butter, really good peanut butter and a superior brand chocolate to dip them in.



Dip the candies in white, dark or milk chocolate, use your favorite kind. Sprinkle them with a color coordinating sugar for whatever themed holiday you're making them for. Now you have a perfect delicious peanut butter candy everyone will love and it's not cooked!



These have always been more classified as buckeyes. These are the same concept shaped into hearts fro Valentine's day, eggs for Easter and you can get as creative as you want. The dough is so easy to mold.



I always refrigerate it for easy handling around 30 minutes. I either shape the dough by hand or use dollar store silcone molds for some shapes.
Either way they come out yummy!

I melt semi sweet chocolate. You can use chocolate melts or dipping chocolate of any kind.


The easiest way without using a professional dipping spoon is using two forks.



When I melt the chocolate in the microwave I use 1 minute intervals, check it, stir and repeat until smooth. Chocolate melts fast and you will burn it if you leave it in there too long. The old fashioned way is to use a double boiler. Mom use to do it that way. Water in the bottom of the pan and she would put a heat proof bowl that fit on top of the pan. Add the chocolate and wait until is was melted. Works great that way also.



This no bake candy is such a fun treat and its so darn easy! These are great for gameday shaped into footballs , baby showers in white pastel colored dipped chocolate or any other occasions just leaving them in round shapes.

Holiday Peanut Butter Chocolate Candies

instructions:

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
dark, milk, or white chocolate (use a good grade chocolate)  around 8 to 12  ounces
colored sugars or sprinkles


In a medium size bowl add the peanut butter and butter mixing together. Add the graham cracker crumbs then slowly add the powdered sugar to form a ball.

Mold into Holiday themes, game day themes or any event you have. Place them on the parchment lined cookie sheet. I refrigerator them (as they are easier to dip in melted chocolate) for around 30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate. Dip the candy into the melted chocolate using two forks. Place on the parchment paper and sprinkle with coordinating holiday themed colors of sprinkles or sugars.

Store in the refrigerator until set
