Peanut Butter Balls

1 1/2 C. creamy peanut butter
1/2 C. butter, softened
1 t. vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
2 T. shortening
4 C. confectioner’s sugar

1. Using an electric mixer, mix peanut butter, butter, vanilla and confectioner’s sugar. (Mixture will be stiff)

2. Shape into small balls and refrigerate to cool. (I used Pampered Chef’s smallest cookie scoop)

3. In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and shortening. Dip balls in the melted chocolate and let them cool. I also piped white chocolate on the tops in different patterns and placed in small muffin papers.
