To reduce Carbs...use Powdered Sugar Replacement (recipe below)

1 1/2 cups peanut butter, creamy
1/4 cup Butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup paraffin -- grated

Mix peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter or margarine and vanilla
together well. Shape into balls or logs, as you desire. Chill for 30
minutes or more.

Melt chocolate chips and paraffin in a small, heavy sauce pan or the
top of a double boiler.

Stick a toothpick or candy fork into the balls or logs and dip into
the chocolate. Drain and place on waxed paper. Allow the chocolate to
harden.

Makes about 90 1-inch balls.
