Ingredients

  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1 cup Pecans (chopped)
  • 8oz Butter
  • 1lb Powdered Sugar
  • 4oz Kitchen Paraffin Wax
  • 12oz Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

Directions

Mixing
Step 1
Using a mixer, beat the butter until soft, then slowly add in the powdered sugar, blending completely after each addition.
Step 2
Add in the peanut butter and mix completely
Step 3
Add in the graham cracker crumbs & pecans last, slowly adding and mixing completely after each addition
Shaping
Step 4
For each cookie, form a small round ball with your hands (about 1 inch, size of a walnut) and place on waxed paper or parchment paper.
Note: If the ball is too large, it will break up as you dip it in the melted chocolate
Note: You can chill the balls in the fridge to make them firmer before dipping. This is optional but may be useful if you have issues while dipping
Dipping
Step 5
Mix together the 1/4 block of paraffin wax and a small bag of chocolate chips in a double boiler until melted together.
Step 6
Stick toothpicks into the candy balls and dip into the chocolate coating. Lay out to cool on waxed paper. You can choose to dip them twice if you want a thicker coating, just let them cool first before doing a second dip.

Peanut Butter Balls

Day 11 of 12 Days of Christmas is better than a Reeses Peanut Butter cup. Perfect for a cookie exchange or gifts for your friends and neighbors. My sister makes these Peanut Butter Balls for our family every year and I cannot resist them when she brings them to our Christmas Eve dinner.
