Directions:
Directions:
Mix peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar. I use my kitchen aid. The dough is very stiff but will hold together when squeezed.

Melt chocolate in double boiler. shave off strips of paraffin into the chocolate. Stir occasionally. The paraffin helps the chocolate set up and gives the candy a sheen.

Form the peanut butter dough in 1 inch balls. Stick the peanut butter ball with a bamboo skewer and dip into melted chocolate. Put it in the candy paper cup. Withdraw skewer and dip it in the chocolate, put a drop of melted chocolate over the hole.

These taste like Reeses Peanut Butter cups. I only make these at Christmas and they disappear quickly.
