Hi All! First time poster, first time confection-maker.

I am trying to make very easy Peanut Butter Balls to take home for Christmas. I followed The Joy of Baking recipe (see link). However, I cannot get the peanut butter to de-liquify and firm into a dough. (not that it's a liquid...just runny) This is no matter how much sugar I add. And I really want to stop adding sugar-i'm about a cup over the recipe-or they will be gross!

I have my mixing bowl in the fridge, hoping that will work. But the issue is that it wouldn't firm into a dough. I fear having it in the fridge is going to do no more than refrigerating a milkshake.

Hi Matt!
What type of pb are you using? A "natural" pb is going to be more viscous than a brand (like Jif) and may not firm up. Maybe freeze it in a cookie sheet and scoop it?
