Peanut Butter Chocolate Candy

My boyfriends father loves these peanut butter and chocolate candies. He has been asking me to make him some for awhile now. As a surprise for him, since Father's Day is so close, I decided to make a batch and bring them over. He loved it. 


1.5 cups confectioners’ sugar        
1.5 cups creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips


1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Place the peanut butter and butter In a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until the butter melts (about 30 seconds.) Take the bowl out of the microwave, add the vanilla and stir. Add the powdered sugar to the mixture and stir with a spatula until the ingredients are well blended. The mixture should look dough-like.
3. Chill the dough for at least 1 hour then roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Chill once more for at least 20 minutes. (This makes them easier to dip)

3. In a second microwave-safe bowl melt the chocolate chips. Once the chocolate is melted dip the chilled peanut butter dough in until the dough is coated. Repeat the process with the remaining balls.
4. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Then enjoy!
