  1. Cream together the butter, vanilla, salt and peanut butter. Stir in 2 cups of the confectioners' sugar, nuts and all but 1/2 cup of the graham cracker crumbs. Add the last 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs only if needed; otherwise it may be difficult to mold the balls.
  2. Form the mixture by hand into 1 inch balls. Roll each ball in the remaining cup of confectioners' sugar. Set the balls in a single layer on a cookie sheet and refrigerate until firm. At this point the cookies may be dipped in melted chocolate or they can be left plain. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  3. To Dip Balls In Chocolate: In the top half of a double boiler; melt the chocolate chips and shortening just until the chips are melted. Remove from heat but leave over hot water. Insert a toothpick into the chilled balls and dip into the melted chocolate until coated. Set on waxed paper until hardened.

I have my own recipe for peanut butter balls and in order for the chocolate to stay thin easy to manage i suggest melting half a stick of parrafin wax into the chocolate

Loved this recipe. I decided not to add the graham crackers and it turned out to be delicious.

I'm giving this a 4 star because it was a great tasting recipe and we love that it uses ground graham crackers instead of rice crispy's, but in the making the balls were hard to get into a ball ...

Everybody loved them. I wasn't sure about the pecans in the peanut butter but it was amazing. I'm looking for more idea on what to roll the balls in. I tried toasted coconut, grahmcracker, and p...

This is the best recipe for Peanut Butter Balls EVER. Very easy to make and delicious. The graham crackers and pecans give it a wonderful texture. I've had many people ask for this recipe.
