I always get requests for these for my husbands Thanksgiving or Christmas pot lucks. They are a huge hit!

Family and kid favorite too!

My father-in-law is claiming half credit for these also...but I am not sure for what exactly...but Thank you Shorty!

Serves:

140 1 inch balls

Prep:

2 Hr

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

3 lb
powdered sugar
1 lb
butter, room temperature
2 c
peanut butter
3/4-1 blk
paraffin
16 oz
chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine butter and peanut butter until smooth.
2
Gradually add powdered sugar until well combined. You may need to dump onto a piece of wax paper and knead until all combined (especially if peanut butter is on the dryer side. Jif and Planter's are moister and work well).
3
Pinch off little pieces of the dough and roll into balls. Place rolled balls on a wax lined cookie sheet. Once cookie sheet is full place in freezer. Continue rolling balls until all the dough is gone. Then place that cookie sheet in freezer.
4
In a double boiler melt chocolate and paraffin wax until completely melted.
5
Take out first cookie sheet only. Stick a toothpick or a skewer in a ball and dip into the chocolate mixture, rolling it to make sure they are completely covered. Place back on tray. Repeat. (I use several toothpick to let the chocolate harden)
6
*If you start to run out of chocolate I take small chunks of wax and a handful of chocolate and remelt it. Repeat if needed.
