Peanut Butter Balls

These are truly the best homemade peanut butter balls EVER! No grainy, crumbly fall apart peanut butter in these, but creamy melt in your mouth centers!! Better than a Reeses!

Peanut Butter Balls

1/2 cup margarine, softened (don't melt!)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup creamy Peanut Butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 large package Chocolate Chips

Cream together the margarine, corn syrup and Peanut Butter until very smooth. Then add the powdered sugar and mix until incorporated.

Roll balls into a little smaller than bite-size pieces (the chocolate will make them bite-size!:)) Put on a wax paper covered plate and place in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips (or any other chocolate you have!) in the microwave. I put mine on for 30 seconds at a time and stir inbetween until it is smooth. (If you have a brick of chocolate to melt...a good way to melt it is to preheat your oven to 200 degrees and then turn the oven off and put your brick of chocolate in an oven safe bowl into the oven and watch for it to melt, or you could use a double boiler).

Remove peanut butter balls from the freezer and place in melted chocolate. Make sure the entire ball is covered and then let drip over the bowl to remove excess chocolate and then place on a piece of wax paper. Wait (or try to) until the chocolate has hardened and then dig in!! Keep any that you don't eat in the frige in an air tight container.

Yummy, yummy recipe from one of the best cooks I sister-in-law Candy!!

I made these when we were at CSU for treats for my kids. Cheap and good but I never thought to dunk them in melted chocolate. Great Idea. Thanks
