Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls Turned To Fudge!
My chocolate peanut butter balls turned to fudge!
I dipped the peanut butter balls in to the melted chocolate. Of course the chocolate was way to thick, but I did it anyway.
They taste delicious, but the chocolate is not hardening. Instead it is staying pretty much like fudge. So now I have peanut butter fudge balls!
Is there something that I can do to still be able to serve these at the holidays? Roll them in nuts or something. Help!
Also...some tricks or tips to make sure the next batch goes smoother so I end up with the correct chocolate dipped peanut butter balls?
Was your chocolate simply "melted chocolate" chips or pieces, or did you add something to it? Why was it so thick?
If chocolate thickens while dipping, you can always pop it back into the microwave for 30 seconds or put it over a double boiler again, to keep it melted.
Also, you can add a tablespoon or so of shortening to the melted chocolate to thin it out and help it set again.
The only thing you can probably do with the peanut butter balls that you've already made is to pop them in the fridge or freezer to get them to set fully. Just be sure to cover them well.
