Ingredients:  
1 1/2 lbs confectioners' sugar
1 16 oz jar crunchy peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened
1 12 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon Crisco or vegetable oil

Directions:
Directions:
In the bowl of a food processor, add 1/2 the quantity of the butter, sugar, peanut butter. Process until well combined.
Shape into 1 inch balls. Refrigerate. Repeat this process with remaining ingredients.

In the top of a double boiler, combine Crisco or vegetable oil and chocolate, simmering and stirring until chocolate has melted. (If you don't have a double boiler, melt it in a small metal bowl over boiling water in a saucepan; alternatively, use a microwave). When melting chocolate, be careful not to allow any moisture to touch it (or steam), as this will cause the chocolate to seize and you'll have to start over!

Dip each ball in chocolate until partially coated. Place on wax paper or silicone sheets.

Store, refrigerated, in an airtight container.

Instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips I use chocolate bark. This is one of my christmas candy recipes.
