Peanut Butter Balls

Only because I love you all so much I will share this recipe. 

It's one of the things that makes me awesome.  People request these every year.  I always end up needing to double, if not triple this recipe.   It's always amused me how many people ask me for these because they are so easy to make and require so few ingredients. 

What they do require is time and patience.  And a lot of your willingness to get dirty.

Peanut Butter Balls
- 1 lb. (4 sticks) butter, softened
- 2 cups smooth peanut butter
- 6-10 cups powdered sugar (get extra, it's not a perfect science)
- chocolate candy coating (sold in baking aisle, in a tray for melting)

Blend butter and peanut butter fully, then add sugar a cup at a time.  Towards the end, it will be hard to mix and you most likely will have to use your hands.  It isn't a precise science as far as how much sugar you will need to add...when it forms into a dough that is easy to roll, it is done.  Roll dough into 1 inch balls, then coat evenly with melted chocolate.  Place on large cookie sheets covered with wax paper.  Chill until set.  Store in the refrigerator.
