Recipe - Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls

Image from Mooss

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
triple the recipe.
