These are one of my FAVORITE treats at Christmas. How can you go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate? In my opinion you can't! These are a little time consuming but fun to make.
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter (soften)
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups powder sugar
Mix together well. Make into balls and lay on a pan covered in wax paper. Refrigerate for a few hours. In a double boiler melt 2 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate. Dip balls in chocolate. Place on wax paper and let sit till chocolate hardens.
I learned a new way to melt chocolate to dip that is really easy. If you have a crockpot or slow cooker fill it with some water. In some mason jars pour the chocolate you are using. Place the jars carefully in the water. You don't want it to be to full of water that it gets in the chocolate. But heat slow cooker. When the chocolate starts to melt stir so it it melt fully. When melted you can dip whatever you need to dip. The chocolate stays melted and easy to use.
