Peanut Butter Balls

Stacey D-J



Preparation time:




2 cups graham cracker crumbs

2 cups peanut butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1 stick softened butter

Chocolate Coating:

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)


Combine 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).
