Peanut Butter Balls coated in Chocolate

I made these last year by a request of a friend who didn't get his yearly amount. Let's just say that people have since been pestering for more. (Photo will be posted after the recent batch)

Ingredients
-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)

Directions
  1. 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.)
  2. 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.
  3. Refrigerate or place in freezer overnight (or at least for about 15 minutes).
