I often make these for Christmas gifts for friends and family. They are a big hit and I recommend them highly!
Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls
1 cup confectioner's sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 pound chocolate chips or melting chocolate of choice (the higher quality the chocolate, the better the results!)
In a medium bowl, combine sugar, peanut butter and softened butter. Mix well. Shape into 1-inch balls and place on a wax-paper-lined cookie sheet. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until firm. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe dish at 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval. Be careful not to overcook the chocolate, as it will seize (solidify and become un-meltable). Dip balls and place on wax paper to harden. Makes about 24 balls.
TIP! If you are making these for a crowd or to give as gifts, you might want to double or
