  • Place confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, softened butter, and vanilla into a large bowl; mix together with your hands to form a smooth stiff dough. Shape into balls using 2 teaspoons of dough for each ball. Place on prepared baking sheet; refrigerate until ready to coat.

  • Melt shortening and chocolate together in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water, stirring occasionally, until smooth; remove from heat.

  • Remove balls from the refrigerator; insert a wooden toothpick into a ball, and dip into melted chocolate. Return to baking sheet, chocolate-side down, and remove toothpick. Repeat with remaining balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
