Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls
Prep time: 2 hours
Total time: 2 hours
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 8 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Decorations
  • Mini baking cups
  1. Mix sugar, peanut butter, and butter in a large bowl with a fork.
  2. Make 1 inch balls with hands, and stick a tooth pick in the center.
  3. Place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  4. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  5. In the meantime, melt chocolate in a Little Dipper crockpot, or over very low heat in a small saucepan on stove (if on stove, stir occasionally to avoid burning the chocolate).
  6. Stir chocolate once melted, and keep warm until peanut butter balls are ready for dipping.
  7. After 1 hour, remove balls from the refrigerator and one by one dip in the melted chocolate to cover.
  8. Place back onto wax paper lined cookie sheet and decorate as desired.
  9. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes before eating to allow chocolate to harden.
  10. Place in mini baking cups before serving.
