Peanut-Butter Balls


This is another of our favorite Christmas cookie recipes. Although there's nothing particularly Christmasy about them, they are so rich that it's probably just as well that's the only time we make them.

12 graham crackers, crushed
12 oz. chunky peanut butter
1 lb. confectioner's sugar
1/2 lb. butter, melted and cooled
1 t vanilla
12 oz. semisweet chocolate (more)

Mix all ingredients except chocolate. Form into balls and chill.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler and let cool just a bit. Dip peanut-butter balls in chocolate and put on wax paper to cool.

Store in refrigerator.
