These are absolutely awesome. However I did use a 50/50 mix of crunchy and smooth peanut butter.

I believe a lot of people don't wash their hands thoroughly enough to form these with bare hands. A lot of people after washing their hands will actually use their cleaned hands to touch/turn the faucet off (how clean is that faucet handle?). They will even then use a cloth hand towel that they have been using for days. Therefore, their hands are still filthy. ....... That said, I always use paper towels to dry my hands with and to use to shut off the faucet. THEN, I use sterile medical grade vinyl gloves on my hands when it is time to handle the food, such as these to form into the balls. I may seem like a germ freak (and actually I am), but what I do is exactly what is done in restaurants and food factories.

I have made these before. I have some suggestions of some other ingredients you could add to the recipe: Besides chocolate chips, what about White chocolate chips. What about other types of nuts pieces too, such as pecans, macadamia nuts or black walnuts. Or, sweetened shredded coconut. How about pieces or whole pitted dates or even raisins. You can even form this over pretzels or break up the pretzels to put into it. Also, I've finished these by rolling/coating some of them in the powdered sugar. ...... So, you could end up making a whole lot of different varieties to put into a tin or package to give as a very nice gift.

Yum!

My family has been making peanut butter candy with this same basic recipe for 40 years, and I can't believe we've never once thought to add chocolate chips. I think we've been missing out . . . !

Great instructable, thank you for sharing this! :)
