Peanut butter balls

Here is another yummy candy you can whip up super quick for the holidays. My mom used to make these at Christmas time. You know how sometimes you think of a certain someone/thing when you eat a certain food??? Maybe you have no idea what I'm talking about.  Anyway for those of you who understand what I'm talking about, for some reason I associate these peanut butter balls with Scott Baio.  Hilarious.  I must have been watching an episode of Joni loves Chachi while I was eating one way back when  :) These are so much better than a store bought peanut butter cup.
Peanut Butter Balls:
1 c. peanut butter (I use crunchy)
6 t. butter, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
1 pkg. chocolate candy quick, Almond Bark,
 etc..whatever it's called in your part of the country.
1-2 t. milk, if needed
Mix peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar.  
form into small balls.  This is where you can add some milk (a teeny bit at a time) so it will come together easier.  Make the balls and set aside.  I put mine in the fridge while I melt the candy quick.  Now roll the balls into the candy quick and set on wax paper or foil. Let them harden.
