Ingredients
Powdered sugar 2 C. 4 C. 6 C. 8 C. 10 C. 12 C.
Creamy peanut butter 1 C. 2 C. 3 C. 4 C. 5 C. 6 C.
Butter or margarine, softened 6 T. 12 T. 18 T. 24 T. 30 T. 36 T.
Dipping chocolate 1/2 lb. 1 lb. 1-1/2 lb. 2 lbs. 2-1/2 lbs. 3 lbs.

Assembly Directions:
In a mixing bowl, stir together powdered sugar, creamy peanut butter and butter or margarine until well combined. Shape candy into 1 inch balls. Place balls on a baking sheet and freeze until firm. Melt dipping chocolate in microwave according to package directions. Dip frozen peanut butter balls into dipping chocolate one at a time and place back on baking sheet.

Freezing Directions:
Freeze dipped chocolates until firm.

Comments:
I used to dip the peanut butter balls in melted chocolate chips combined with butter. The dipping chocolate goes so much faster, though, and it a better "candy" look. The coating stays hardened even when the candies aren't frozen. In the Midwest, I purchase what's called "almond bark" in chocolate and vanilla and melt it in a glass measuring cup in the microwave. Fast and easy! My daughter has a friend who prefers the balls dipped in the vanilla flavor.
