Cook Time

Prep time: 3 hours
Ready in: 3 hours
Yields: 4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter or margerine
  • 1 Cup peanutbutter
  • 1 1/2 Cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1/2 Cup canola oil
  • 2 Cups chocolate chips or baking chocolate, semi-sweet or milk chocolate

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl combine butter and peanut butter.
  2. Blend in sugar and 1/4 Cup oil.
  3. Roll into bite sized balls and refrigerate for several hours until slightly firmer.
  4. Prepare chocolate for dipping. Improvise a double boiler by placing a slightly smaller pot on top of another. (some chocolate can be prepared in the microwave, read your packaging) Add water to the bottom pot and heat until boiling.
  5. Mix 1/4 oil with chocolate in top pot until thoroughly melted. Keep heat low enough that it will not scorch but stays melted.
  6. Roll refrigerated peanut butter balls in the melted chocolate so they are thoroughly covered. Place on sheet to cool and keep refrigerated.
