  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter

  • ½ cup finely ground graham cracker crumbs

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Combine peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and confectioners' sugar in a bowl or a food processor until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  2. Roll teaspoonfuls of peanut butter mixture into balls. Refrigerate until ready to dip in melted chocolate.

  3. Melt chocolate chips and shortening together in the top of a double boiler until very liquid. Using a fork or a skewer, dip each ball into chocolate leaving just the very top of the ball exposed. Set on a greased cookie sheet, setting each ball on the peanut butter end. Refrigerate until the chocolate is firm.
