3 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.


In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar with hands to form a smooth stiff dough.


Shape into balls using 2 teaspoons of dough for each ball.


Place on prepared pan, and refrigerate.


Melt shortening and chocolate together in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water.


Stir occasionally until smooth, and remove from heat.


Remove balls from refrigerator.


Insert a wooden toothpick into a ball, and dip into melted chocolate.


Return to wax paper, chocolate side down, and remove toothpick.
