Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening


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.

Repeat with remaining balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
