Peanut Butter Balls

from Gayleen (my mother-in-law!)

2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
3 tbsp softened butter (not margarine)

With electric mixer, mix well. (Sorry for the two pics below... they were take with my old camera -while my other camera's battery was charging- and so they didn't turn out too great.... hence the reason I have a new camera!)Roll into balls.Refrigerate for several hours. Long enough that balls are completely cold and will make chocolate set up quickly when dipped.Roll balls in melting chocolate (not melted chocolate chips). I use a fork to roll the ball around and then tap the excess on the side of the bowl. Set the balls on cookie sheets covered with waxed paper.Let cool and enjoy some homemade peanut butter cups.

Yum! We use this same recipe -- from my dad, which means it must have come from Gayleen or Grandma Harris! ;) It's heavenly! I love your blog!
