The Twelve Days of Goodies - Day 10

My husband only made one request for a Christmas goodie this year. I of course, granted this wish for my Honey. So in our house we now have a container full of Peanut Butter Balls. This is my Mother-in-law's recipe that she gave me when we first moved here.

Peanut Butter Balls

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups peanut butter
1/4 cup butter, softened

Put all ingredients in a bowl. One tip, if you buy an 18 oz jar of peanut butter, you have your 2 cups without having to measure it all (anything to save doing more dishes).

Mix like you would a pie dough. I even broke out my pastry blender.

I also suggest using your hands to finish mixing. Check that the mixture will stay together for you. If it seems a little dry, add a little more butter.

You can make the balls any size you would like, I like to keep them closer to bite size.

Melt some chocolate coating and dip the peanut butter balls in the chocolate to thoroughly cover them. Set on a baking sheet to dry.

And that's all there is to it. No oven, little measuring, lots of yummy!
