Chocloate covered Peanut Butter Balls

We make these every year and pass them out for Christmas. They aren't healthy, but they are tasty.

2 lbs creamy peanut butter
1 lb butter or margarine, room temperature
2 lbs powdered sugar
dipping chocolate (I like the Ghiradelli bars from Costco).

Mix all the ingredients (except chocolate) together (it is best to use your hands) until all the ingredients are well combined.
Roll the candy into balls. If it seems a little soft, put it into the fridge for 1/2 hour to firm up.
Melt SMALL quantities of dipping chocolate in a microwave safe container, checking often and stirring as it is melting. Using 2 spoons, coat the balls in the chocolate.
Put on a piece of wax paper to dry.
