Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

It’s not Christmas without chocolate-covered peanut butter balls! My mom makes these every year and this was my first attempt to make them myself. These tiny treats filled with holiday cheer are perfect for a cookie exchange or hostess gift.

1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
18 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 inch square para wax

Mix together peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla. Roll into one-inch balls and place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Chill in refrigerator until hard.

In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and wax over medium-low heat. Using a toothpick, dip cold balls into chocolate and place back on wax paper. Take toothpick out and cover hole with chocolate (use toothpick dipped in chocolate to cover). Store in refrigerator.
