Peanut Butter Balls


1 cup butter, softened

1 cup crunchy peanut butter

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

3-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

2 cups chopped walnuts

2-1/2 cups (15 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

4 teaspoons shortening

Chopped nuts or sprinkles


In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and vanilla. Add confectioners' sugar. Stir in the cracker crumbs, and walnuts. Shape into 1-in. balls. Place on baking sheets; cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

In a deep glass measuring cup or bowl, combine the chocolate chips and shortening. Microwave until melted, stirring every 15 seconds; stir until smooth.

Dip balls into melted chocolate; shake off excess. Roll in nuts or sprinkles. Place on waxed paper until set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: about 7 dozen.

These are great Easter Ideas from Family Fun Magazine, Food Network, and Taste of Home.
