I got this recipe from my mother several years ago. Not sure where she got it but I can tell you this is the most decadently delicious candy you can possibly imagine. It is always a part of our Christmas baking. I like to put them in petit four papers.

  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Dip peanut butter balls into the chocolate until they are completely coated. Allow chocolate to harden before serving.
