1 1/2 C. peanut butter
1/2 C. butter-room temp

Set aside chocolate. Mix together all the other ingredients, into a thick dough. Use tablespoon to measure, then roll into round balls.

Then store in containers and refrigerate.

Extra Notes:

I don't know where this recipe came from, but it has been in my family for years. My elders have been making it as Christmas candy for as long as I can remember. Now that I have a family of my own, it has become tradition for us as well.
