Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Balls


I made these yesterday. YUM. I chose this recipe because it didn’t call for “a slab of parafin wax.” That weirded me out.

1 3/4 cup peanut butter

4 cups powdered sugar

1 stick unsalted butter

1 t vanilla

2 cups chocolate chips

4 TB shortening

1. Cream together peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla. Shape into small balls. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.

2. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in pan over low heat. Dip balls in chocolate using toothpicks. Place on waxed paper until hardened. Refrigerate.

YUM! (Sorry this picture is so tiny!)

About Erin

I'm a mom to the sweetest little boys ever, Owen & Colin. Owen was born in April of 2007 after 22 hours of active labor in a hospital. Love him more than life. Knowing I didn't feel another hospital birth was right for me, Colin was born at home surrounded by our 2 midwives and our little family. I've been married to my hubs for 7 years. We met in 1997 in an AOL Chatroom...the rest is history. I'm crazy. I'm funny. I am socially awkward. This is my life.
