"I got this recipe from my mother several years ago. Not sure where she got it but I can tell you this is the most decadently delicious candy you can possibly imagine. It is always a part of our Christmas baking. I like to put them in petit four papers."

Directions

  1. Mix sugar, peanut butter, butter, coconut, walnuts, and graham cracker crumbs in a large bowl using hands until thoroughly blended. Roll 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Dip peanut butter balls into the chocolate until they are completely coated. Allow chocolate to harden before serving.

the consistancy was a little dry, but all in all, it was pretty good! i did add a little less coconut then the recipe said, and it was much better

This is really similar to the recipe that my grandmother has passed on to the girls over the years. We use pecans instead of walnuts and add butterscotch chips to the chocolate chips for the coating. Also to make the coating harden a little better and a little more shiny we add a half a block of edible food wax (found in baking isle).

Instead of dipping in the melted chocolate, I drizzled the chocolate over the balls...either way, delish!!

I'm not sure why these have such a low rating because I thought they were delicious. After mixing all the ingredients, I did find they were a bit dry (though not so dry that I couldn't form them into balls) so I just added another large dollup of peanut butter and they were perfect. I also added some butterscotch chips to the chocolate for dipping because I like the flavour of the two together.

I can't believe I found this recipe. Thank you so much COGRANDMA4!! These are what my mother made and I like them so much better than the traditional buckeyes. The variety of textures and flavors! You are right...decadent!! I did use pecans instead,only because that is what mom did and we're a pecan family.
