One thing I can’t resist making when Christmas is drawing near is Peanut Butter Balls or Buckeyes, as some people call them!

  • 2 c. peanut butter
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 2 c. graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 lbs. bakers chocolate or chocolate chips


Mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter and graham cracker crumbs in large bowl. Form into 1″ balls and refrigerate 1 hour. Melt chocolate in double burner. Dip balls in chocolate and cool on wax paper.

Ideas to make them extra special:

  • drizzle melted white chocolate or mint chocolate chips over them
  • after dipping them in chocolate, roll them in coconut flakes or crushed rice crispies

    These look delicious. I make a similar version, but I’m going to try your recipe this year.

    Thanks :-)

    I like to use heath bar pieces as a topping for these, it sticks better on peanut/chocolate bars but I am going to try it with this recipe!
