 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      lb            butter
    2      lbs           creamy *or* chunky peanut butter
    3      lbs           confectioners sugar
      2/3  bar           parafin wax -- the kind used for
                          canning
   24      oz.           chocolate chips -- milk or semi-sweet
 
 1. Cream together butter and peanut butter.  Add confectioners sugar
 slowly and mix thoroughly.
 
 2. Roll mixture into little balls (no more than an inch a piece) and
 place a toothpick in the center.
 
 3. Melt chocolate chips, then add melted wax.  Stir well until smooth. 
 This can be done using the microwave, or on the stove top.  In
 microwave, use glass dishes for best result, and melt wax slowly.  On
 stove top, use a heavy sauce pan and melt slowly so not to burn the
 chocolate *or* the wax.
 
 4. Dip peanut butter balls into chocolate and swish around to make sure
 they are completely covered.
 
 5. Let candy “dry” on a sheet of wax paper.  Store in refrigerator.
 
 These are perfect for serving with coffee and dessert, and I include
 them in boxes of home-made assorted cookies for gift giving.
