Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened (not melted)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1-3/4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 12-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Directions

  • Combine butter, peanut butter, confectioners sugar and corn syrup, and mix well.
  • Roll into 1-inch balls, and place in freezer on waxed paper-lined tray or baking sheet for at least 1 hour.
  • Melt chocolate chips with vegetable oil in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not simmering, water.
  • Stir constantly until smooth.
  • Remove peanut butter balls from the freezer. Using a fork or skewer, turn each candy piece in the melted chocolate to coat evenly. Transfer to another waxed paper-lined tray. If the chocolate gets too cool, reheat it gently and continue to coat the candy.
  • Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes.
  • To keep, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one month.
  • Makes about 30 candies.
  • Note: Store these delicious little drops in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months.

Notes
