Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls

This is our recipe for chocolate covered peanut butter balls, and yes, they are the best I have ever eaten;p
I am not so good with exact measurements, as we kind of just try and see what works as we go along, and go by taste. But if you are an exact measurement kind of person, and would like this recipe, I will make these again this weekend and measure everything exact.
I use;
1 18 oz jar of Jif creamy peanut butter
2 bage Hershey's semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick of butter (softened)
5 cups of confectioners sugar
a few tablespoons of shortening

Mix the peanut butter and the butter until smooth. Add the confectioners sugar.
I will often put the bowl in the fridge for about an hour. (it's easier to shape into balls when it's more firm!)
melt chocolate chips, stirring constantly. add shortening for
shine, stir.
roll peanut butter balls in melted chocolate, set on cookie sheet
covered in wax paper.
chill in fridge.
when these are cold, you can safely put these in containers, but
keep cold!!
My kids enjoy making these, and eating them;p

  2. These sound wonderful--makes my mouth water! I signed on as a follower of your blog through networked blogs. Don't know if you are having the same problem with Google blog followers that I am. I like to sign on through that because the posts get delivered to my dashboard. However, my own blog followers no longer show on my blog and now I notice that the space on other blogs indicated for followers is blank also! Anyway, I'm glad I found your blog.
