Chocolate Covered Cherries

* 1 cup powdered sugar
* 1 cup creamy peanut butter
* 2 tablespoons butter, softened
* 4 teaspoons vanilla
* 48 maraschino cherries with stems
* 9 ounces semi sweet chocolate
* 2 tablespoons crisco

Start early as these require lots of chilling time. Add together first four ingredients; cream well. Shape 48 3/4 inch balls. Set on waxed paper lined baking sheet. Chill 1 hour. Drain cherries well and pat dry. Flatten balls and carefully wrap around cherries, encasing to base of stem.
If your fingers get sticky, just pat a little powdered sugar on them. Return to baking sheet; chill 3 hours. Melt chocolate with crisco. Hold each cherry by its stem and dip into chocolate, covering well. Return again to baking sheet and chill for 2 hours.
