Blend peanut butter, powdered sugar, margarine, vanilla and salt. Shape into ½ inch ball. Place chocolate in glass dish and microwave 20-30 seconds at a time til melted. Keep checking and stirring so it doesn’t burn.  Insert wooded toothpicks into candy ball then dip ¾ of the ball into chocolate. Place on waxed paper until set. Remove wooden toothpicks and smooth over holes. Place in small paper bonbon cups, if desired.  Makes about 8 dozen.
