Peanut Butter Balls

Peanut Butter Balls
1 cup peanut butter
2 T butter
1 cup icing sugar (this is the Canadian term for powdered sugar or confectioners sugar)
1 6 oz bag semi sweet chocolate chips
2 T shortening

Mix peanut butter, butter and sugar. Place in freezer for 1-2 hours.

Once nearly frozen, form peanut butter mixture into small balls.
Put back in freezer for a few hours to harden.

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.

Makes 2-3 dozen, depending on the size.


  1. I wish I didn't have to wait so long to eat these. I just want one so bad! Balls.

  2. They look good we will try'em.
