Rollin in the Dough!'s Note:
Ahhhhh! Scary! These are so fun for a Halloween party, children and adults both devour them. They are different than the usual recipe because you add Butterfinger candy bars for a nice crunch!

- 4Shape into 1-inch balls; place on waxed paper.
- 5Freeze about 45 minutes.
- 6Melt white chocolate in a double boiler or get a med sauce pan filled 1/4 of the way with water and heat until simmering and place a large glass or stainless steel bowl over top and turn heat off -if water is boiling it will scorch chocolate.
- 7Add chocolate to bowl, stir constantly until melted and smooth, if you want the coating thinner add a Tbs shortening until desired thickness is reached.
- 8Dip balls, one at a time, into coating. Let excess coating drip off
- 9Place on waxed paper, immediately press an M&M onto center of each peanut butter ball (you can also wait to put M&M's on until after set and just use a dot of your piped colored chocolate to adhere)
- 10Refrigerate until coating is firm.
- 11Using leftover white chocolate add red food coloring until desired color is reached (you may have to reheat) and place in a ziploc or pastry bag,cut a corner very small, pipe squiggly lines on eyes to make them look blood shot or use red decorating gel.
