6 tablespoons unsalted butter – softened
1 c. creamy peanut butter – avoid the natural peanut butter with oils
16 ounces chocolate bark
2 c. powdered sugar
How to make Peanut Butter Balls:
Step 1: Combine the peanut butter and butter in a medium-sized bowl until creamy. Gradually stir in the powdered sugar and continue mixing until well incorporated.
Step 2: Tent the peanut butter ball and keep it in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Step 3: Once the peanut butter ball is ready, scoop about 1-inch size balls. Roll and shape them, then put them on a cookie sheet. Pop in the freezer.
Step 4: On top of a saucepan filled with water, place a heat-safe bowl. Add the chocolate bark into the bowl and heat to boil, stirring until the chocolate is thoroughly melted.
Step 5: Take the peanut butter balls out of the freezer. Stick a toothpick into one peanut butter ball and dip it into the chocolate. Then, tap your wrist a couple of times with your other hand. This will free some of the drippage.
Step 6: Onto a sheet of wax paper, drop the coated balls, and let them harden. Transfer the balls into a container once hardened and keep them in the fridge or on the counter.
