½ cup peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
8 ounces chocolate-flavored candy coating or chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl stir together ½ cup of peanut butter and 3 tablespoons of softened butter. Gradually add 1 cup of powdered sugar, stirring till combined. Shape into 1-inch balls; place on waxed paper. Let stand till dry (about 20 minutes).
Melt candy coating or chocolate chips. Cool slightly. Dip balls, one at a time, into coating. Let excess coating drip off peanut butter balls. Place on waxed paper; let stand till the coating is firm. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.
