If you’re from Ohio I know it’s bothering you that I fully dunked the peanut butter balls in chocolate instead of making them look like buckeyes. I have a problem with all you Ohio people leaving little naked places on your candy. That’s just not right.
These are my must-have Christmas treat. I remember playing Barbies with my sister and we would break to go get a snack of peanut butter balls. Yum!
Gather up your ingredients:
2 sticks butter, softened
2 1/2 cups graham crackers
1 cup peanut butter
1 lb. powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 bar parafin wax
Cream the butter and peanut butter together in a mixer bowl. Mix in the remaining ingredients until it’s all well blended. Roll into balls about the size of a walnut.
Melt a bag of semisweet chocolate chips with the 1/3 bar of wax in a double boiler. The wax thins the chocolate to help it coat better and also gives a glossy shine. Dip the balls into the melted chocolate and put on wax paper to set up. Store in the fridge.
If you have left over chocolate, throw in some pretzels.
