Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls only require a few ingredients and they are so easy to whip up. They make the perfect treat for your loved ones.
~ 2 cups creamy peanut butter
~ 3/4 cup salted butter (softened)
~ 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
~ 3 3/4 cup powdered sugar
~ 2 packages (1 lb each) Chocolate Candy Coating
~ Mix the peanut butter, salted butter and vanilla together in a large bowl.
~ After they are well mixed together, add in the powdered sugar, a little at a time. You may need to add a bit more or a bit less powered sugar. You have enough powered sugar when the mixture holds together well in one giant ball in your mixing bowl.
~ Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for 15 - 25 minutes until they firm up.
~ Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Cover and refrigerate again, for about 15 - 20 minutes. Skipping this step makes the dough very hard to dip into the chocolate.
~ Melt the chocolate according to the package directions.
~ Dip the peanut butter balls one at a time into the melted chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip off, as the chocolate will pool a little when you set it down. Place the dipped peanut butter chocolate ball onto wax paper and let it harden.
