-4 cups icing sugar
-1.5 cups peanut butter
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp maple extract (I've been using rum extract as we don't have the maple)
-1/4 cup butter
-2 cups of chocolate chips (This amount changes depending on how many of the balls get made)
- Combine the butter, peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and maple flavoring. Cream well and knead well. Form the dough into 1 inch balls and set onto cookie sheet with wax paper. (I put them in the freezer for 24 hours to help keep formation.)
- Melt the chocolate chips over low heat or in the microwave. To ensure the chocolate doesn't harden too soon on you, do it 1 cup at a time. Dip into melted chocolate chips before placing back on the cookie sheet.If you have extra of the peanut butter mix, sprinkle over chocolate.
- Refrigerate or place in freezer overnight (or at least for about 15 minutes).
