Let's Make It
MIX together the peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar until well blended.
ROLL into 1 inch balls and place on wax or parchment paper. Place finished balls in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
MELT the BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks, dark or milk chocolate and paraffin wax down in a double boiler. If you do not have a double boiler you can always use a small metal bowl over a pot.
USING a toothpick, dip the balls into the chocolate leaving a portion of the top exposed. Drop onto wax or parchment paper. Let stand or refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
