2 1/4 cups peanut butter (I use creamy)
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips (I prefer milk chocolate)
2 tbsp shortening

(1 cup white chocolate chips, 1 1/2 tsp shortening and food coloring for drizzle if desired)

Cream together peanut butter and butter. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Form into tsp-tbsp size balls. Refrigerate on wax paper for 30-45 minutes. Melt chocolate chips and shortening together in microwave or a double boiler. Once melted, remove peanut butter balls from the fridge and dip (with a toothpick) in chocolate until peanut butter is about 3/4 covered. Make drizzle (same melting instructions as the chocolate dip) and drizzle over balls. Refrigerate. Serve chilled.
