Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

This is a famous recipe in my house. We make it every single Thanksgiving. Over this last year I developed a semi allergy to peanut butter. I can only have in limited amount which is so annoying because once I eat one peanut butter ball I want to eat 10 more! Not a good idea if your allergic but if you're'll love these!! Promise!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
 Peanut Butter Mixture
14oz 100% natural peanut butter (just salt and peanuts)
3 cups of confectionery sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup (1 stick) of melted margarine or butter

Chocolate Mixture
14oz semi sweet chocolate chips
4 tbsp. margarine or butter

1. Melt the butter
2. Mix all ingredients together (peanut butter, sugar, vanilla and butter)

Line a pan with waxed paper.
3. Form peanut butter ball mixture into 2-3 inch size balls (makes about 50)
4. In a double broiler melt the chocolate with the butter together

Dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate covering it half way.
Place the balls chocolate side down on the waxed paper.
Put in fridge for at least 2 hours (so the chocolate can harden).
