Chocolate Peanut butter balls

This is so easy to make even your kids can do this themselves!  Makes approximately 100 1 inch PB balls.

Ingredients:
2 cups smooth peanut butter,  1 cup butter or margarine, softened 5 cups confectioners’ sugar.

Mix all together. Shape into 1 inch balls, place on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt 24 ounces of chocolate chips.  They usually come in 12 ounce packages.  Follow the package’s instructions on how to melt this down.  Dip peanut butter balls in melted chocolate using a fork (scoop from the bottom), toothpick (insert toothpick on top of the frozen PB ball to pick up)  or easter egg dipping wire.  After dipping, place the chocolate covered PB ball on wax paper lined plate and refrigerate for 10 minutes to cool.

You can also melt white chocolate and drizzle on the already dipped ball for design or sprinkle powdered graham cracker or drizzle melted caramel and sprinkle with some sea salt.  Get creative… the worst part about messing up is eating the evidence and with chocolate covered PB balls, all your mistakes will be delicious!  Great for gifts and even wedding give-aways for those brides & grooms crazy for chocolate covered PB!

Enjoy!
