Peanut Butter Balls

Let me say one thing, these are so addictive! I always bake at night, after the kids are in bed, so some times the yummy stuff gets eaten before I can take a picture the next day, this almost happened with these! 

I needed something chocolate so bad and I had some leftover chocolate candy coating from Christmas so these wonderful things came to mind. I had mentioned making them for Christmas but I never did because I had so much other stuff. Also, my husband said they sounded gross and he wouldn't be too crazy about having them. Well, he came home while I was dipping them and I made him try one.....he is addicted!!! 
My 5 year old daughter is also in love with them. She normally isn't too big on the desserts I make but she LOVED these. Best thing is they are super quick and easy to make!
