These are always fantastic and a favorite found on many a cookie tray this time of year. This recipe is from my sister.


1-1/2 Cups peanut butter (we used chunky)

6 cups powdered sugar

1 Cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

4 Cups semisweet chocolate chips

1/4 Cup Crisco shortening


Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla.

Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheet. Chill in freezer 30 minutes or until hard.

Melt Chocolate chips and shortening over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and dip balls 3/4 of the way in chocolate using an Easter egg dipper, toothpick, or fork. Refrigerate to set.  Store in air tight container in fridge.
