Friday Recipe: Maple Peanut Butter Balls

I love peanut butter balls. Especially rolled in sugar and with a Hershey's Kiss melted in the center. Yum. But with a teaspoon of maple extract? Heavenly. OK, so I used maple syrup because I had no extract and couldn't see buying it for one recipe. It worked out pretty well, I had no complaints!

1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon maple flavored extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1. Combine the butter, peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and maple flavoring. Cream well and knead well.
2. Melt the chocolate chips over low heat. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls. Dip into melted chocolate chips.
3. Refrigerate overnight (or at least for about 15 minutes) on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
