Peanut Butter Balls

I love Chocolate, doesn't everyone :-), add peanut butter and you can not lose. So yesterday morning I decided to whip up some peanut butter balls. Perfect for Valentine's Day make these for your sweetheart and you are sure to have them wrapped around your finger! Ok are you ready to make this yummy dessert?Get your pen and paper out to write down this list of ingredients, are you ready??
What you need:

4 tbs of melted butter
1 cup smooth peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
6 oz semisweet chocolate chips

That is it! You probably have all of that in your pantry!

How to make it:

1. Mix the peanut butter, sugar, and butter together in a bowl
2. Now roll the mixture into balls and place in a baking dish
3. Put the balls in the freezer for 10 minutes
4. Now melt your chocolate in the microwave
5. Then dip your balls into the chocolate and cover them completely (***side note: I am sure there is a better way to do it like use a skewer but I didn't I used my hands can we say messy fingers***)
6 Place the covered balls back into the baking dish and place it in the refrigerator for 25 minutes and you are done!!
**They may not be pretty but they are delicious, as you can tell my hubby stole a few before I took the picture***

Happy Cooking Y'all!!!
