Peanut Butter Balls

I found this recipe this morning. I don't remember where, but here it is.
I'm making this tonight for sure.

Peanut Butter Ball Recipe


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




1 cups peanut butter, Skippy or equivalent, not natural peanut butter
3/4 to 1 full box powdered sugar
cup butter. softened
1 tsp. vanilla

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Mix peanut butter, butter and vanilla with an electric mixer until well blended.

Add the powdered sugar, a little at a time, blending with the mixer until all the sugar is mixed in. The dough will be slightly crumbly.

Form the dough into 1 - 1 1/2 inch size balls by rolling the dough between your hands. Set formed balls on a plate or cookie tray.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In a double boiler add:

12 oz. bag of milk chocolate chips, Guitard is my favorite for its flavor
2 Tbs. shortening

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Heat the double boiler to the lowest boil you can achieve.
When the chips are melted, dip one peanut butter ball into the chocolate with tooth picks. Roll the ball in the chocolate until it is well covered.

Remove the peanut butter ball with tooth picks to cookie sheets lined with waxed paper.

Once they are cool you can put them in plastic containers in the refrigerator or freezer. They will keep for several weeks

I like to also include Crushed Graham Crackers until it's roughly the same consistency..

Just if you're looking for a new version..

I make the same things Gobo, but I make them into peanutbutter cups, using those little brown wrappers you find for the reeses brand peanutbutter cups. They taste great!
