Let's Make It
Melt peanut butter and butter over double boiler or microwave. Transfer to mixing bowl. Add powdered sugar to warm peanut butter and butter mixture a bit at a time while mixing on medium-high speed. Mix until very smooth--very important! Put creamy mixture in refrigerator until cooled completely.
Scoop scant tablespoonfuls of peanut butter mixture and roll into balls. Put balls on parchment or wax paper, stick a toothpick in each and freeze until frozen hard.
Melt chocolate and wax in double boiler. Get peanut butter balls out of freezer and dip in chocolate, leaving a circle of peanut butter on top around toothpick. They will now look like a buckeye nut! Put back in refrigerator until chocolate is set. Remove toothpicks and package in resealable containers.
Store in fridge or freezer. Never let the balls get to room temperature.
