DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil, set aside.
  • Combine the softened cream cheese, 3 cups powdered sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt in the large bowl of an electric mixer.
  • Mix the candy on medium speed for several minutes until the mixture is well-combined and homogenous.
  • If the dough appears to be too sticky, add the extra powdered sugar and mix until it is somewhat stiff but still pliable and not dry.
  • Using a teaspoon or a candy scoop, form the candy into small balls (about 1inch diameter or less) and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Place the candy in the freezer or refrigerator to chill until set, about 20 minutes in the freezer or 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  • Once you are ready to dip the balls, melt or temper the chocolate according to your preference.
  • Make sure to melt the chocolate in short intervals in the microwave or over a double burner, so that it does not overheat.
  • Dip the peanut butter balls into the melted chocolate using dipping tools or two forks.
  • Return the dipped balls to the baking sheet, and while the chocolate is still wet, top each ball with a peanut half.
  • Repeat with remaining candy.
  • Place the dipped candies in the refrigerator to set the chocolate. Store the balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
