Scrumptious Saturday - Peanut Butter Balls

Here's week two of yummy  Valentines Day candy treats.

Mix 1 cup cream peanut butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla in a large bowl. 

Knead mixture until smooth, adding up to 1/2 cup more powdered sugar as needed to prevent sticking.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and set on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet: chill 1 hour. 

Line 2 more cookie sheets with was paper; set aside. Place assorted sprinkles in shallow bowls.

Microwave 1 1/2 cups light cocoa candy melts, stirring every 15 seconds, until smooth. Drop the balls 5 at a time in the melted chocolate to coat. Remove balls with a fork, allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Roll balls in sprinkles to coat. Place on lined cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining balls, then chill until chocolate is set. Makes about 40 peanut butter balls.
