These were great. After dipping, I sprinkled with pecans and coconut! Very easy. Tip: Put balls in freezer to firm before dipping. Makes it much easier

Everyone in my extended family kept snitching these delicious peanut butter balls this Christmas. I'm a chocolate snob, so I used Ghiradelli semi-sweet chips. I couldn't bear to pollute it with shortening or any other fat - and quite frankly the thicker chocolate coating was perfect for me (but had to use 3 bags of choc chips). I microwaved the chocolate to melt it, stirring frequently, and used a spoon to dip the balls - much easier than a double boiler and toothpick routine. And if you're wondering - use creamy peanut butter!

These were a hit at my church's Christmas party. I would recommend TWO bags of chocolate chips though. I did not have enough chocolate to cover all of the peanut butter balls.
