Chocolate Peanut Butter Graham Cracker Balls

This past Saturday night, Ben and I had a major craving for something sweet. After perusing my Pinterest for a good hour or so, we finally came upon this recipe and knew we had to try it! With a sweet boyfriend, a funny movie (21 Jumpstreet, anyone?) and a devilishly easy recipe like this, I can’t think of a more satisfying Saturday night. Call me a homebody, but I’m a sucker for these kind of things.

If you’ve been looking for something to take to a party or you simply have the munchies, this simple recipe is sure to go above and beyond your needs. In fact, if I were to describe the components of my favorite dessert, this one would cover pretty much everything; it’s full of peanut butter, covered in chocolate and sprinkled with Heath Bar bits. Now, do yourself a favor and head to the grocery store!

Makes: 20-24 balls

Ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter, crunchy

1 1/2 cups graham crackers crumbs

¾ cup Heath Bar bits

1 – 1 ¼ cup chocolate, semi-sweet

Directions:

1. Blend graham crackers in a food processor until the crumbs compile to ½ cups. Add graham crackers crumbs to 1 cup of peanut butter and mix. (Note: Add peanut butter if needed but avoid making the mix too moist.)

2. Form 24 even sized balls and place on a wax paper covered baking sheet. Freeze for 30-60 minutes.

3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave but DO NOT OVERCOOK. Place Heath bits in a small bowl. (Note: You can use whatever topping that you would like including nuts, crushed Oreo…etc.)

4. Using a toothpick or fork, dip the peanut butter balls, one-by-one, in the melted chocolate. Toss in the Heath Bar topping until covered. Refrigerate or freeze until firm.

Mmmm, don’t these look delicious? Wishing y’all a happy Monday and the sweetest week!
