Peanut Butter Balls

By Deborah Bateman –

This is a recipe my family makes every year for Christmas.

I usually make four recipes of them, so we can have plenty for all our Christmas gatherings.

natural sunscreen with zinc oxide
  • 1 lb. confectioners sugar
  • 2 sticks margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers (I run mine through the salad shooter w/ the grate blade)
  • 1 cup peanut butter-you can use crunchy or creamy whichever you prefer, I prefer crunchy.
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Melt butter, stir in peanut butter until melted, and add sugar, vanilla, and graham crackers crumbs. The mixture will be very thick. Form into balls. Melt 6 oz. chocolate chips with 1/4 bar paraffin wax over low heat in double boiler. Use a toothpick or spoon to dip balls into chocolate. Put on wax paper until set.

* I usually make four recipes which will make about 400 Peanut Butter Balls.
* I like to mix my chocolate chips, using some semi-sweet and some milk chocolate.
* You can do only milk chocolate, or only semi-sweet, or half of each, or I prefer 3 semi-sweet to 1 milk chocolate.
