For best results, freeze the peanut butter balls before dipping them in the chocolate. Dip them in small batches, a dozen or so at a time, to prevent them from thawing out.

  • 1/4 cup (60 g) margarine, room temperature
  •  1 3/4 cups (455 g) crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup (128 g) powdered sugar
