Almond Peanut Butter Balls Recipe @pinch

These homemade peanut butter balls taste like the famous candy cups... but much better. Peanut butter balls are always a crowd favorite. This version puts a twist by coating them in white chocolate and adding chopped almonds. The almond bits are unexpected and add a delightful crunch. Added to the peanut butter filling, these are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We added a chocolate drizzle for decorating, but sprinkles would be great, too. I took my peanut butter ball recipe and added my own touches. They are really good to me. In my photo, the white ones are the ones with chopped almonds. The chocolate ones are made the same just use chocolate chips and don't put in the chopped almonds.
