Peanut Butter Eggs

1/2 pound butter, softened
2 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 1/2 pounds powdered sugar
1 1/2 pound semi-sweet chocolate

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and peanut butter. Gradually add powdered sugar, until it forms a stiff dough. Shape into small eggs and place on a cookie sheet lined with foil or waxed paper. Refrigerate until firm. Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot water. With a fork, dip each egg in the melted chocolate. Return dipped eggs to the lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate until chocolate sets.
