Peanut Butterballs Dipped in chocolate

½ cup creamy peanut butter (can be substitute other nut butters)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar or more if needed
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chips)

 Cream peanut butter and butter together in a medium size mixing bowl, slowly add in powdered sugar until well blended together and shape into a dough ball. If needed add more powdered sugar a tablespoon at  until mixture holds together in a large ball. Cover peanut  butter dough for about 15 minutes or until firm in the refrigerate so that they are good to handle to form into balls. 

Shape into 1-inch balls, place on a baking sheet, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow be firm.  Peanut butter balls should stay in shape for dipping in chocolate. Melt chocolate according to package instructions or us chocolate chips.

Dip peanut butter balls one at a time into melted chocolate and allow excess chocolate to drip off. Place on waxed paper lined baking sheet cover  and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Great to add to a Christmas fudge tray.
