Calling all Chocoholics!

This is  a recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls that a friend gave to me about 25 years ago!  My teenage daughter uses it every year either for Valentine's Day, Birthdays or Christmas.  She makes them for her current boyfriend since it can be so difficult to buy presents for guys.  They make the boyfriend feel so special because they are handmade, decadent treats.  Shhhh.......We won't tell  that she makes them for every boyfriend she has ever had!!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Mix together until smooth:
18 oz. Super Chunk Peanut Butter
1 lb Confectioners Sugar
1/4 lb margerine
1tsp. Vanilla

Form into balls

Melt together until shiny and smooth

2 12 oz pkg  semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp oil

Dip peanut butter balls in the chocolate and put on wax paper.

We usually cut the recipe in half and put in about an extra 1/4 cup of  peanut butter.
