Comment on this recipe
My family loves these any time of year.
1 pound powdered sugar, sifted (4-3/4 cups)
1-1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon salt
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate pieces
2 ounces paraffin
1 teaspoon vanilla
Blend powdered sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla and salt. Shape into 1/2 inch balls. Place chocolate pieces and paraffin in top pan of a double boiler. Heat over boiling water until chocolate and paraffin are melted (water in bottom of double boiler should not touch top pan). Insert toothpick into ball; dip 3/4 of ball into chocolate mixture. Place on waxed paper until set. Remove picks and smooth holes. Makes approximately 8 dozen.
