I have made these since childhood, they are so good, well worth the work. Easy, but time consuming.
My recipe is basically this one, but instead of shortening, I use shaved paraffin wax. I can't tell you how much, because I eyeball it. It is just enough to make the chocolate shiny and make it stick to the chilled peanut butter ball. Too much and the chocolate gets waxy. I like to dunk the entire ball in chocolate, then after refrigeration, go back w/a toothpick dipped in chocolate close up the tiny hole left by the toothpick from the first time around of dipping. It is a little more work, but makes them so much prettier.
***Also the quality of the ingredients matter. If you are using for gifts, it is best to splurge and use real butter, good quality chocolate and peanut butter.
