These peanut butter balls were featured on Trisha Yearwood's show on Food Network, Saturday this last weekend. I'm starting to like her recipes. I've made these peanut butter balls and her chicken tortilla soup so far. There was a lasagna she made and she used tofu instead of ricotta cheese and I'm really curious to try that now. My husband is lactose intolerant and we've tried replacing tofu with other things as well. The one thing that kind of turned me off about that recipe is the black beans. I'm more of a meat fan when it comes to lasagna and that doesn't float with my boat very well.
If you love peanut butter then you'll love these. I'd love to try these with Biscoff spread or Nutella next time. I never used the dark corn syrup the recipe called for and just added another ½ cup of regular corn syrup. There's a song on South Park that these remind me of, but we won't go there. 🙂Print

I don't think you are supposed to cook the sugar and syrups very long. Cook it just long enough to melt the granulated sugar into the syrups. I have made these peanut butter balls over and over and they have always turned out well. Also I roll them into smaller bites and they go a long way and everybody loves them!
How long are you supposed to keep the corn syrup and sugar on the heat??
I have made trisha Yearwood peanut butter balls twice now. I follow the directions and both times the end results are the peanut butter balls are so hard you can barley bite into them. Are they suppose to be that way? Are they suppose to be gooey? OR what am I doing wrong. THANK YOU-Teresa
