no bake pb choc balls

no bake pb choc balls

1-18 oz. jar of smooth or chunky peanut buter

1 - 16 oz. bag of confectioners sugar

1/4 c. butter, melted

chocolate almond bark


chocolate candy melts 


12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips & 2 tsp. shortening

In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, confectioners sugar and melted butter until the mixture

 is crumbly. For the next step, the best way that I've found to make a smooth filling is to use your hands

 to mix everything together.

Line a baking sheet with foil. Roll the peanut butter filling into 1 inch balls and line the baking sheet with

 rows of the balls. Set the baking sheet in the freezer for 5-7 minutes to chill the peanut butter balls for

 easier dipping.

While the peanut butter balls are chilling, melt the chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl

 that is deep enough for dipping. I melted 6 blocks of chocolate almond bark at a time, stirring at 45 

second intervals until smooth.

Remove the baking sheet from the freezer. Insert a toothpick or wooden skewer into a peanut butter ball

 and then dip it into the chocolate, turning quickly to cover the entire candy. Place onto a second baking 

tray that has also been lined with foil. Swirl the chocolate on the top of each candy for a pretty design.

 Refrigerate until the chocolate had completely dried.

Store the candies in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
