Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 pound (16 ounces) powdered sugar
2 sticks butter or margarine
1-1/3 cups peanut butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
6 ounces chocolate chips
1/2 block paraffin

Instructions

Cream butter and sugar together. Add peanut butter and crumbs. Mix thoroughly. Chill to make it easier to form balls. Melt chocolate chips and cut up paraffin in top of double boiler. Form small balls with the mixture, then dip in chocolate with a fork and push off onto waxed paper with a second fork. Makes about 50 to 60 balls.
