"Here's a simple little recipe I threw together last night that came from your collection. All I did was put a couple of recipes together, fine tune, and it came out perfectly to make this one delicious snack. I now call it.."
Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crème Balls
Makes about 24 bite sized balls
1/2 cup powdered sugar unsifted
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter or chunky
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable shortening
In a medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and peanut butter till thoroughly blended. It will be slightly dry and crumbly. Now, shape it into 3/4 inch bite sized balls. (You should get about 20-24 balls depending on your shaping accuracy.)
1. Place chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler or in a bowl that fits snugly over a saucepan. On low, heat water but don't boil. Stir frequently till smooth.
2. Drop each ball into the creamy chocolate, coat, and then lift with a fork and place on wax paper.
3. Refrigerate dipped balls till set. About 30 minutes. Store finished candies tightly covered in the refrigerator.
