I omitted the cherries, walnuts, and coconut. I thought they were delicious but I will use a little less powdered sugar next time.

I placed the peanut butter mixture in the freezer and let it solidify. I used a Tbsp scoop to form the balls, then used chopsticks to dip them in the chocolate. This made it easy and minimized the mess.

this recipe is just awesome, I cant keep them long enough on the tray! Usually my son doesnt like sweet stuff but he always wants one of these. They are rich but very good, also looks very professional so great for bake sales too. When I make this I make it X4 (big family), so I added one less cup of confectioners sugar and they were just right. I made the balls bigger then what the recipe called (about the size of a small plum). and I added a bit more cherries and less walnuts and they were just awesome
