  1. 1 cup Butter Softened
  2. 1 cup Crunchy (I used smooth, I never buy crunchy) Peanut Butter
  3. 2 Tbs Vanilla Extract
  4. 3 1/2 cups Icing Sugar
  5. 2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  6. 2 cups Chopped Walnuts (I fine chopped for A)
  7. 1 1/3 cup Shredded Coconut
  8. 2 1/2 cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  9. 4 tsp Vegetable Shortening
  10. Extra Nuts/sprinkles/whatever to roll balls in
  1. In a large bowl cream PB, butter, and Vanilla.
  2. Add icing sugar, stir in cracker crumbs, walnuts, and coconut until a large semi sticky lump.
  3. Roll into 1 inch (ish) balls, place on cookie sheet and then slide into the fridge for about an hour.
  4. In a bowl over boiling water melt chocolate chips and shortening until smooth. (you can do it in the microwave at 15 second intervals but I don’t use one/have one).
  5. Dip balls into chocolate (this was messy and a little hard to do).
  6. Roll wet ball in either chopped nuts, sprinkles would be cute, or leave plain… its up to you. Let set.
  7. Store in a container in the fridge and enjoy!
