Chocolate and White Peanut Rolls Recipe

Chocolate and White Peanut Rolls


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup REESE'S Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3-2/3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups finely crushed peanuts
  • 1 cup HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips
  • 4 teaspoons shortening (do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil) , divided
  • 1 cup HERSHEY'S Premier White Chips


  1. Butter 8- or 9-inch square pan.

  2. Heat butter, peanut butter and milk in medium saucepan over very low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is melted and smooth. With wooden spoon gradually beat in powdered sugar and vanilla. Remove from heat; pour into prepared pan. Cool completely. (Mixture will appear dry, but softens when rolled into balls.)

  3. Line 2 trays with wax paper. Spread crushed peanuts on one tray; set aside. Roll peanut butter mixture into 3/4-inch balls and place on second tray. If necessary, refrigerate peanut butter balls until firm enough to handle easily for coating.

  4. Place chocolate chips and 2 teaspoons shortening in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Cool slightly.

  5. Dip peanut butter balls completely into chocolate mixture, one at a time, with fork. Gently tap fork on side of bowl to remove excess chocolate. Immediately roll in crushed peanuts; gently reshape if necessary. Place candy balls into small paper candy cups or return to wax paper-lined tray. Refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes. Store in cool, dry place.

  6. Repeat procedure with remaining peanut butter balls, white chips and remaining 2 teaspoons shortening. About 7 dozen candies.
