For Darla!!

Peanut Butter Balls
You may hate me for this
These are so good but way too rich for me!Peanut Butter ballsIngredients12 ounces peanut butter (smooth or crunchy) ...I used smooth1 cup butter (real) (2 Sticks)1 box confectioners' sugar1 teaspoon vanilla1 package chocolate chips or Chocolate brick (for dipping balls)(I used Chocolate Almond Bark)DirectionsMix peanut butter, butter, sugar and vanilla (I melted the butter a little so I could stir it and after I got a handle on the mixture I used my electric mixture to make sure everything was blended). Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet, place in freezer for an hour. Melt chocolate in a double boiler (I melted the chocolate on low in my crock pot while the peanut butter balls were in the freezer...if you melt it on high you could scorch it). Dip balls into mixture. Cool. *The reason why you need to freeze the peanut butter balls is so that the chocolate will stick when you dip the peanut butter balls in it. Also, I laid all of mine on wax paper to cool and then put them in plastic zip locks. I had purchased some cute tubs with snowmen on them a while back from the dollar I put them in the tubs to give as gifts. This recipe made over 40 peanut butter balls.
