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
2½ cups graham crackers
1 cup peanut butter
1 lb. powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
12 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
⅓ bar paraffin 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 paraffin 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 leftover chocolate, throw in some pretzels.
