Directions

  1. Cream together the butter, vanilla, salt and peanut butter. Stir in 2 cups of the confectioners' sugar, nuts and all but 1/2 cup of the graham cracker crumbs. Add the last 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs only if needed; otherwise it may be difficult to mold the balls.
  2. Form the mixture by hand into 1 inch balls. Roll each ball in the remaining cup of confectioners' sugar. Set the balls in a single layer on a cookie sheet and refrigerate until firm. At this point the cookies may be dipped in melted chocolate or they can be left plain. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  3. To Dip Balls In Chocolate: In the top half of a double boiler; melt the chocolate chips and shortening just until the chips are melted. Remove from heat but leave over hot water. Insert a toothpick into the chilled balls and dip into the melted chocolate until coated. Set on waxed paper until hardened.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Fantastic!!! But I did find some tips. I didn't have graham crackers (I know!) So, I did half a batch with crushed rice krispies and half with crushed chocolate cereal (In my case, nesquick). I hate semi-sweet chocolate and liked them much better with milk chocolate chips. You will need more chocolate than the recipe calls for if you dip them all. For chips I won't bother with a double boiler. Just microwave for 1 min and stir. Refrigerated them for an hour before I rolled them, and coated my hands in icing sugar. Made it way easier. I used "chopsticks" (two straws) to roll them and get them out. Other than that, I didn't change a single ingredient. I think I'll go get one now!

I have my own recipe for peanut butter balls and in order for the chocolate to stay thin easy to manage i suggest melting half a stick of parrafin wax into the chocolate

Loved this recipe. I decided not to add the graham crackers and it turned out to be delicious.
