Jingle Balls
Contributed by Diane S.

This recipe makes about 120 chocolate covered jingle balls. We usually make
a batch this large to give as gifts to all our friends. If you want to make
these just for yourself, cut this recipe in half or thirds. Kids love this
project - it's really messy!

3 cups creamy peanut butter
7-8 cups powdered sugar
2 cups softened butter
4 teaspoon vanilla
3 packages (12 ounce) chocolate chips
6 tablespoons parawax

Mix peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla together in a bowl.
Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Melt chocolate chips w/ parawax over low heat.
Make peanut butter mixture into balls about the size of a quarter.
(It's best to work with small amounts of the mixture,
keeping the rest refrigerated until you're ready to form and dip.
The mixture gets gooey and messy very quickly.)
Using toothpicks or small forks, dip the balls into the chocolate.
Set on wax paper and refrigerate.
