DIRECTIONS

  • Soften the peanut butter by microwaving for about one minute on Power Level 3.
  • In a medium bowl, cream peanut butter and butter.
  • Stir in icing sugar, dates and peanuts and mix well.
  • Roll the peanut butter mixture into 1" balls or whatever size you like, if dough is sticky, refrigerate for 30 minutes or so before rolling.
  • Place on waxed paper lined baking trays and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  • Place butter and chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl and melt the chocolate at 30 second intervals until smooth (I usually do this at Power Level 6 so that it doesn't overcook).
  • Dip the balls into the chocolate and place back onto the wax paper lined trays and pop into the fridge again for an hour or so.
  • These freeze beautifully - I place balls into tupperware and put wax paper between the layers.
