Peanut Butter Chocolate Drops
These are easy and fun to make. Wouldn't be a bad idea to double this recipe.
- Combine butter, peanut butter, confectioners sugar and corn syrup, and mix well. Roll into 1-inch balls, and place in freezer on waxed paper-lined tray or baking sheet for at least 1 hour.
- Melt chocolate chips with vegetable oil in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not simmering, water. Stir constantly until smooth.
- Remove peanut butter balls from the freezer. Using a fork or skewer, turn each candy piece in the melted chocolate to coat evenly. Transfer to another waxed paper-lined tray. If the chocolate gets too cool, reheat it gently and continue to coat the candy.
- Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. To keep, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one month.
- Makes about 30 candies.
Note: Store these delicious little drops in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months.
