Boy that party room sure gets full use! And I think it's really cool that both yours and his family get together at the same time. That must be really fun! And about that concert...see the difference between me and you Deb...is that YOU can ACTUALLY SING GREAT! I however sound like somebody is torturing cattle....it ain't pretty and it ain't for public consumption lol

~Peanut Butter Balls~
~~~~~~~~
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 - 2 1/2 cups confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar
~~~~~~~~
~Chocolate Coating~
9 ounces semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons shortening
~~~~~~~~
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the peanut butter, unsalted butter, and salt in a microwaveable bowl, and heat in the microwave for about one minute or until just soft (check and stir the ingredients every 20 seconds). Stir in the vanilla extract and confectioners sugar and mix until it has the consistency of a dough (add more sugar if necessary).
Roll the dough into 1 inch round balls. Place on the cookie sheet and refrigerate for about one hour.
Melt the chocolate and shortening in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Dip the balls, one at a time, in the melted chocolate, making sure the entire ball is coated with chocolate. Then, with two spoons or a dipping fork, remove the peanut butter ball from the melted chocolate, allowing any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl. Place the chocolate covered balls back on the baking sheet. When all the balls have been dipped in the chocolate, place in the refrigerator until the chocolate has set.
Note: If you want to make Buckeyes: place a toothpick into each peanut butter ball and dip, one ball at a time, into the melted chocolate, leaving the top quarter of each ball undipped.
Makes about 40 pieces, depending on size.

Enjoy Deb... so nice to meet you. Marilyn
