Hand Dipped Peanut Butter Balls


this is a super yummy recipe.
our family has made these for years.
i remember as a little girl going out to my grandma's house and dipping christmas chocolates.
i remember my mom making them and sticking them in the freezer until she was ready to dip them.
she forgot that they are really good straight out of the freezer too.
she needed to make more.

this is a great treat to make for many occasions.
this is a great treat when you want to win friends and influence people.
this is a great treat to make with the kids.
{at least the "rolling them into little balls" part}

Hand Dipped Peanut Butter Balls
1 cup of softened butter
1 1/2 cups of peanut butter

Cream and add

2 tsp vanilla {if you have the good stuff it will make a difference here}
3 cups of powdered sugar
1/2+ powdered milk

Taste it at this point. we like ours creamy so i add more than 1/2. more like 3/4.
Roll into balls. You can stick them on a cookie sheet and freeze them first and then transfer to a freezer bag.
Dip in chocolate.

Our family uses Peter's milk chocolate when we can get it. It comes in a big 10lb block. A really good milk chocolate that you temper will work too. They fit perfect in the little mini cupcake liners.

don't blame me when you can't stop at just one.
