2 cups creamy peanut butter
5 cups powdered sugar
In a large bowl mix all ingredients together until the consistency of play-dough. Using a tablespoon measure, roll into balls & place on a waxed/parchment paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate.
2 big Hershey bars (or 8 reg size)
1 12oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 bar of wax (melt in a rinsed out soup can inside a pan with 1-2 in water)
Melt chocolate together. Melt wax separately. Gradually add wax to melted chocolate, stirring constantly.
Drop balls into melted chocolate mixture, pick up with a fork and gently slide back onto lined baking sheet. Keep chilled in fridge.
If you are a chocolate/peanut butter lover...look out. I'm not the biggest fan of chocolate & peanut butter and I LOVE these. My sister makes them every Christmas and everyone who knows her hopes they are on the recipient list.
I made these as a Happy New Year gift for a few friends and will probably do it again next year. Nothing says "I love you" like one more treat delivered on January 1st...hee hee!!
(The wax can be found by the canning supplies in the grocery store. Each box contains four bars. You could also melt it in the microwave in a container that you don't mind throwing out.)
