Peanut Butter Balls

Peanut Butter Balls
Give me peanut butter this week!  I think every family has a peanut butter ball recipe?, but just in case you don't, I'll share ours!  This recipe came from my great Aunt Kitty.  David's Aunt Sue and my Aunt Sally also make peanut butter balls.  They are sinfully good.  You just might need a steaming cup of wassil to choke down  go with all the peanut butter this week.  :)

1/2 Cup butter
1 Cup peanut butter
2 Cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. paraffin
6 oz. chocolate chips
1 Cup walnuts

Cream butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla.  Add nuts.  Shape into balls and chill.
Melt chocolate chips and paraffin over hot water.  Dip balls into melted mixture.  Place on wax paper and chill- Refrigerate.
The recipe made 23 balls, but mine were pretty generous in size.  I would suggest making a double batch... I know I will next time!

***  Thank you, Jesus for protecting our family in Japan (Uncle Patrick, Mariko and girls)!  We continue to cry out and pray for so many others affected by this horrific disaster!  GOD HELP US!
