"A man is better pleased when he
has a good dinner, than when his wife talks Greek."
- Dr. Samuel Johnson, from the General
Foods Kitchens Cookbook, 1959.
Peanut Butter Balls
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick softened butter
18 ounces melted chocolate (I use Ghiradelli chocolate chips); may melt
in double boiler with small piece paraffin (optional but good to make
chocolate set and shiny)
all ingredients except chocolate and paraffin; chill slightly. Roll into
balls and chill or freeze. Drop chilled or frozen balls into melted
chocolate; place on foil sprayed with cooking spray until chocolate is
completely set. Store in refrigerator (also freeze very well).
This is a
recipe from Karen Powers – yum! Very easy – and wow are they good!
