1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 Tbsp salted butter softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp vegetable shortening or coconut oil optional
Mix the peanut butter and softened butter together in a mixing bowl. Gradually stir in powdered sugar until fully combined. Cover and place in the fridge for about 15 minutes to firm up.
Using your hands, shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Place the balls on a baking sheet, cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes (this will hold it’s shape for dipping).
Melt the chocolate chips according to package instructions.
Using a fork, dip the peanut butter balls one at a time into the melted chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to fall off. Place the chocolate balls onto wax paper, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
