Use a fork to combine the softened butter, peanutbutter or nutbutter, 2 packets stevia, and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.
Chill in the freezer until set, about 15 minutes
As the peanutbutter mixture sets make the chocolate topping
Break up 2 ounces dark chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl. Add the 2 teaspoons palm shortening. Melt in the microwave on high, stirring every 20 seconds, or in adouble boiler.
Add the optional 1 packet of stevia or sweetener of choice and 1 (small) pinch of sea salt to bring out the rich chocolate flavor. Set aside, stirring every few minutes. you want the chocolate mixture to start to thicken a bit before you coat the peantubutter balls with it.
Put it all together
Once the peanutbutter mixture has set, use a small to medium cookie scoop, or a tablespoon, to scoop the peantubutter mixture into even balls. Place on a plate and back in the freezer for 5 minutes if your kitchen is warm. The peanutbutter balls cannot be melty, or the chocolate won't set on them.
Re-warm the chocolate if needed to make it a pourable consistency. Drizzle over the peanutbutter balls until it is all used up. Return the whole plate to the freezer for 5-10 minutes, or until completely set, and then transfer to a covered container.
