Peanut Butter Balls.

So there are a couple things you should know about me. Besides the fact that I am addicted to sweets, I am even more addicted to peanut butter! So put them together and there is no stopping me!! This recipe does just that, it is definitely a family favorite and it is made quite often, especially during Thanksgiving and Christmas! They are so divine that I even won the Summerhays Annual Family Dessert Contest with them.
{That would be my mom's side of the family. The extremely competitive ones!} Yep, thats right bragging rights for a year! Anyways, they are delicious. It's like homemade reeses! and they are quite festive for halloween! If you are allergic to chocolate {like Lindsay, saddest day of her life.}, feel free to use white chocolate and they are just as good if not better. Like I said they should be a staple in everyones home, especially because it only uses 4 ingredients! Try them, and forever be addicted!

Peanut Butter Balls

1 1/2 Sticks of Butter
1 pound Powdered Sugar
1 cup + 2 tbsp. Peanut Butter
1 Bag of Chocolate Chips

Combine butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter in a bowl.  
Form dough into 1 inch balls and freeze. {20 min-1 hour depending on how patient you are.}

While balls are freezing melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 sec. increments.
Dip balls in chocolate and place back on plate. 
(when dipping i find it easiest to get a fork and stab the bottom of the ball and dip.)
If balls start to become soft place back in freezer then dip once hardened again.

Freeze for about 5 min for chocolate to set.
Eat and Enjoy. and then eat some more!
