STEP 1  Cream peanut butter, cream cheese and butter together until completely smooth and free of any lumps.

STEP 2 Using a 1 ounce scoop or tablespoon, scoop balls of peanut butter mixture and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Roll with your hands to smooth.

STEP 3 Carefully lower them into the melted chocolate, about 3/4 the way up the ball of peanut butter.

STEP 4 Place on parchment-lined baking sheet to let the chocolate set.  Smooth the top with your finger to cover the hole from the skewer.

If you want a thinner coating, dip when the chocolate is warmer.  For a thicker coating of chocolate, let the chocolate cool just a bit longer before dipping.
