These are so yummy. I make them all the time. Put them in the freezer and eat them any time. Makes a good candy treat at xmas time or any time. Its a favorite with my friends and family. Tastes just like a Reese's Peanut butter cup!

2Next dip them into the melted chocolate. (I always melt my chocolate in the microwave. Put the 12 oz choc chips with 5 tbls margarine in a bowl in Microwave for about 1 min and stir until ready for dipping. If still thick, put in microwave for about 30 sec longer. Should not be too thick..After dipping and the chocolate starts to get hard again before you are done, just put 3 tbls more of butter with the chocolate and microwave again for a minute until smooth.
3Put the dipped ball on alum foil on cookie sheet until set. I put them all back in the fridge until set, about 2 hours. when done, Put them in a covered container in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat. I pop one in my mouth right out the freezer...they are delicious..
