Directions

1
Gather ingredients..Place wax paper in baking pan. I used a jelly roll pan.

Ps: These peanut butter balls must chill for 2 hours, then another 30 minutes before coating in chocolate.
2
In a large bowl; melt peanut butter chips in the microwave for 30 second to 1 minute. Stir till smooth.
3
Add butter, cream, vanilla..stir till smooth. Slowly add sugar till holds its shape. About 3 cups. It will be stiff like dough.
4
Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Roll into 1 inch balls; place on wax paper covered tray. Refrigerate another 30 minutes.
5
In another bowl; melt chocolate chips with shortening in microwave 30 to 60 seconds. Stir till smooth.
6
Dip the balls in chocolate. You can roll or sprinkle with nuts, cookie crumbs, candy sprinkles.. I ground walnuts fine in my food processor. Or you can just leave as is.
