I remember Mom would have these yummy snacks waiting for us kids when we got home from school. Now I stir up these homemade treats for my husband and two daughters. They love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate...and I love that they don't keep me in the kitchen all day.

"a must for any peanut butter lover on your baking list. I have to make multiple batches for my kids at christmas as they gobble them up! only change I make is to use honey nut cheerios as that is what Ihave on hand."

"I didn't think there was anything special about these, but since several people asked for the recipe I guess I was wrong. I lost patience with dipping the balls, so I spooned the chocolate onto some of them."

"These were good. I'm not sure the coconut is necessary....I couldn't taste it in the recipe. Were very easy to make and good for all ages."
