Once your balls are hardened (um....why is balls such a funny word?), melt chocolate with shortening in a small pot over low heat on the stove.
Drop balls, a few at a time into chocolate. Use a fork to fully coat them. Pick up, allow excess chocolate to drip off and place on a tray of somesort.Allow peanut butter balls to chill in the fridge or freezer for a few hours until chocolate is hardened.
