If you have a mega sweet tooth and wish you could have those famous Hershey's peanut butter cups anytime you want them, you've come to the right place. I promise these will be a hit with your family and friends.
1 18 oz. jar smooth peanut butter
1 stick room temperature butter
1 box powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 T. shortening
Combine the peanut butter, softened butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed together. Then roll the mixture into small balls and place on a baking sheet. You need to chill them until firm. Place them in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
When you're ready to dip them in chocolate, melt the chocolate chips and shortening in a double boiler over simmering water. Carefully dip each peanut butter ball in the chocolate and place on a serving tray. Refrigerate for up to two weeks or they can be frozen.
