  • The butter should be at room temperature, so it should be soft. If it is in the refrigerator, take it out at least 2-3 hours before starting the preparation. If your butter is hard, the ingredients will not fully combine, and you will not be able to mix them properly.
  • You can use 2 tablespoons to shape the mixture. Take a small portion of the mixture with one tablespoon and shape it by rolling it with the other. Alternatively, you can shape it by hand if you prefer.
  • When melting chocolates, use a deep bowl. We will dip the peanut butter balls one by one into the melted chocolate to ensure they are fully coated.
