I got this recipe from my mother several years ago. Not sure where she got it but I can tell you this is the most decadently delicious candy you can possibly imagine. It is always a part of our Christmas baking. I like to put them in petit four papers.

Directions

  1. Mix sugar, peanut butter, butter, coconut, walnuts, and graham cracker crumbs in a large bowl using hands until thoroughly blended. Roll 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Dip peanut butter balls into the chocolate until they are completely coated. Allow chocolate to harden before serving.

the consistancy was a little dry, but all in all, it was pretty good! i did add a little less coconut then the recipe said, and it was much better

Instead of dipping in the melted chocolate, I drizzled the chocolate over the balls...either way, delish!!

I'm not sure why these have such a low rating because I thought they were delicious. After mixing all the ingredients, I did find they were a bit dry (though not so dry that I couldn't form them into balls) so I just added another large dollup of peanut butter and they were perfect. I also added some butterscotch chips to the chocolate for dipping because I like the flavour of the two together.
