Decadence – Peanut Butter Bon Bons

These are a once a year indulgence!  We look forward to them along with others each Christmas time.  They are time consuming, but SO worth it!

Peanut Butter Bon Bons

Ingredients

1 2/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup crunch peanut butter
1 cup melted butter
1 1/2 bags of chocolate chips (12oz. bags)

1. Place graham crackers squares into a plastic bag, seal the bag and roll with a rolling pin to crush.  You will use about 9 graham cracker squares.

 

 

2. Melt the butter.

 

3. In a glass bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs and the confectioners sugar.

 

 

4. Add the peanut butter and then the butter, stir well, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl.

 

 

5. If the mixture seems too moist to roll into balls place in the refrigerator to harden.

6. Take the mixture out of the refrigerator and allow to warm some.

 

7. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Take the mixture and roll into balls – I tend to keep the balls about 1″ – these are very rich.  Place the balls onto the wax paper.

8. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler.  I add about 1/2 a bag and when the chocolate gets low I add more – don’t want to waste the chocolate. Use a good brand of semi sweet or dark chocolate.

9. Place the ball in the chocolate and roll around to cover completely.  I use a spoon and small spatula to roll the balls and take out.  Place them on the sheet. (I had a picture, but when I was editing it disappeared!)

10.  Once all the balls are covered in chocolate place the cookie sheet either in the freezer or refrigerator to set the chocolate.  Once the chocolate is set you can transfer from the cookie sheet to a freezer bag.

Believe me – one of these will satisfy any sweet tooth!
