  • 1 1/2 c Creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 c Butter
  • 1 ts Vanilla extract
  • 16 oz Confectioners sugar
  • 6 oz Chocolate chips
  • 1 tb Shortening


Line baking sheet with wax paper. In a medium sized bowl mix peanut
butter, vanilla, butter and sugar with hands to form a smooth dough.

Place on wax paper and put in refrigerator. In the top of a double boiler
over simmering, not boiling, water, melt chocolate and shortening together.
When smooth, pour into a small bowl or measuring cup. Remove peanut butter
balls from refrigerator. Insert a wooden toothpick into ball and dip into
melted chocolate so that 3/4 of ball is covered. Return to wax paper,
chocolate side down, and remove pick. Repeat with all balls. Refrigerate
on wax paper 30 minutes or longer, until chocolate is firm, not sticky. To

wax paper between layer.
