Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup dry roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

In small bowl, mix chopped peanuts, granulated sugar and cinnamon; set aside.

In another small bowl, stir peanut butter and powdered sugar until completely blended.

Shape mixture into 24 (1-inch) balls.
