Peanut Butter Balls

If you like chocolate and peanut butter together, you'll want to make these delicious candies.  I remember making "gobs" of them for gifts and parties for several years.

1 pound (4 sticks) butter (real butter)
3 pounds powdered sugar
4 cups peanut butter
2 - 12 ounce packages chocolate chips
1/4 pound parrafin or 2 tablespoons shortening

Melt butter.  Stir in peanut butter and powdered sugar.  Mix well.  Roll into 1-inch balls.  Melt chocolate chips and parrafin or shortening in microwave safe bowl. Be careful not to burn the chocolate.  Cook at quick intervals, stirring well between cooking times.  Dip balls in the melted chocolate using toothpicks.  Allow to harden on waxed paper.  Store in airtight container.  May be refrigerated, if desired.
