How to Make Peanut Butter Balls


  1. Mix the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and powdered sugar together. Roll into 1 inch balls (not any larger). Put on aluminum foil on cookie sheet and into the refrigerator until cool. (about an hour or longer)
  2. Next 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.
  3. Put 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..
