This is definitely a favorite. I got the recipe from my sister Coco, she gave me a cool little recipe book in which you could write your own recipes, and she had written this one in before giving it to me (I still have it, even though the pages are grease-marked and are falling out, it rocks). I only modified the recipe to make into balls rather than in cups, and it is amazing.

Deceptively easy, which seems like it would be rather average, but oh no. These little suckers are addictive; thanks to the uneven crumbles of the graham crackers, the texture is smooth-yet-crunchy. Just enough buttery nutty goodness with sweet and chocolate. They are the closest thing to actual Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that I have ever come across, and this is one of my signatures, as simple as it is. I make these all the time, for any function (parties, potlucks, baptisms, Christmas, whatever). It still remains my most requested recipe. So here you go, everyone who has ever asked (and those that are first timers). My Famous Peanutbutter Balls. Enjoy, and try to keep the recipe to yourself :)
Peanut Butter Balls
2 c. crushed graham crackers
2 c. powdered sugar
2 c. peanut butter (creamy or chunky, your choice)
1/4 c. butter (barely melted in the microwave)
Mix together the first 4 ingredients as you would a pie crust. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Melt the dipping chocolate. Roll peanut butter mixture into small balls, and dip into the chocolate. Allow to set on wax paper. Chill until served.
