This one seems to be a holiday favorite. If you're craving it at another time of the year, these can be altered by using white chocolate melting chips and food coloring. We made these over the summer and covered with red tinted white chocolate. Then using some black decorating icing, we decorated them as lady bugs then added half a black jelly bean for the head! The kids had a blast making them and of course eating them!

1 cup creamy peanut butter
4 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 (12-ounce) packages semisweet chocolate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Beat peanut butter and butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until fluffy. Add vanilla, beating well. Gradually add sugar, beating until blended.
Shape into 3/4 inch balls; place on wax paper lined cookie sheets. Insert a wooden tooth pick into top of each ball. Freeze at least 2 hours.
Place chocolate morsels in top of a double boiler; bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook until chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Dip each frozen ball into chocolate, coating three- fourths of ball. Place on wax paper-lined cookie sheets, and chill until chocolate is set. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator. Yield: 9 dozen
