Peanut Buttery Chocolates
adapted from Paula Deen
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 bag (12 oz) milk chocolate chips
1. In a medium bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, cracker crumbs, and sugar, stirring well.
2. Make into balls and then flatten a little if desired. Put them on wax paper and refrigerate until firm. (about 2 to 3 hours)
3. In microwave safe bowl melt chocolate until you stir and it is smooth. (about 90 seconds in my microwave; stirring after every 30 seconds).
4. Dip peanut butter balls in chocolate with 2 forks or a spoon letting excess drip off. Place on waxed paper to let the chocolate harden. I put them back in the fridge.
