Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
I’m not completely sure what to call these bad boys. Are they cookies? Are they truffles? I don’t really care! Whatever you call them, they are extremely addictive and I can’t get enough of them.
I had these last year at a Christmas party so when I first read this recipe I never would have guessed they were made with vanilla wafers. I was a little thrown off by that ingredient but after making them myself and eating them, I remembered one of my favorite childhood snacks, Nutty Bars! Have you ever had those Nutty Bars by Little Debbie? They taste exactly like that!
