Advent Virtual Cookie Swap

1-16oz. box of confectioners' sugar
1-12oz. pkg. chocolate chips
1-18oz. jar of creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. butter, softened
Combine everything but chocolate in a bowl with an electric mixer. Roll into bite sized balls. Insert a toothpick in each ball; place on cookie sheet. Freeze 2 hours.
Before removing balls, melt chocolate chips over low heat, stirring frequently. Dip frozen balls into melted chocolate. Place on waxed paper, cool at room temperature until chocolate hardens. Remove toothpick. Yield: approximately 5 dozen 1" balls.

These cookies are easy for little hands to be involved in the making, freeze well and who can resist a combination of chocolate AND peanut butter? Enjoy and Happy Baking!
