1 1/2 cups Creamy SunButter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups powdered (confectioners’) sugar
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. shortening
Line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper; set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix SunButter, butter, vanilla and confectioners’ sugar with hands to form a smooth stiff dough. Shape into balls, using 2 teaspoons dough for each ball. Place on prepared pan, and refrigerate or freeze.
Melt shortening and chocolate together in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth, and remove from heat.
Remove balls from refrigerator or freezer. Insert a wooden toothpick or skewer into a ball and dip into melted chocolate, leaving a small circle at the top uncoated. Return to wax paper, chocolate side down, and remove toothpick. Repeat with remaining balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
