Peanut Butter Party Ball

As we were walking among the apple trees this past Sunday, Squishy was eating a Nutter Butter cookie and said “Mom try dis!”. I took a bite of cookie and I guess I had that look, because the Mr said “Oh, you’ve got that look.”… Apparently I have a ‘recipe brewing’ look. I passed Squishy an apple for a bite and he got the look too!

This recipe is so easy, only 4 ingredients! It comes together in minutes, it’s a total crowd pleaser and would be great for a fall party! Football parties, Halloween gatherings, thanksgiving snacks… Or even just an easy play date treat. And if you have a bigger crowd, it’s so easy to double or even triple!

What else would we be doing on a snow day? Baking, of course!
I used 1/4 c raw sugar and 1/4c white sugar with the 1/2 c brown sugar this time, mainly because I was getting low on raw sugar. I like the crunch that raw or turbinado sugar gives to cookies, but you could certainly use what you have or prefer. These would also be really fantastic with a 1/2 c chopped pecans and a 1/2 c dried cranberries…I just didn’t gave any today.
