Peanut Butter Balls with Graham Crackers

 

We have made these yummy peanut butter balls every Christmas for 24 years. I always make them with my Mother in Law. Now my little girl loves making them with us.
-MINE KINDA FLOPED SO I WILL TRY AGAIN NEXT YEAR AND MAYBE USE SOME CRUSHED RICE CRISPIES IN THEM. BUT IN MY DEFENCE I’VE NOT MADE THEM SINCE I WAS 17 YEARS OLD. BUT I WILL RE MASTER THIS LOL
-WELL MISS CHARLENE I WASN’T GIVING OFF AN ATTITUDE. JUST THAT IT APPEARED ON MY SITE AND I COMMENTED ON IT I’VE NOT READ THE OTHER PAGES AT ALL EITHER AND I’M SURE MISS LISA WASN’T OFFENDED NOR IF MIS KELSEA WAS OFFENDED SHE WOULD HAVE SAID SO. I MENT NO HARM. SO LEAVE AT THIS AND SAY NO MORE
-got this same recipe from my husbands gramma 32 years ago in the ladies auxiliary volunteer fire dept cookbook for Jefferson, MD. only one thing different- it called for a can of coconut added to the peanut butter mix. Anyone remember coconut in a can??? This is an awesome recipe- great for gift giving too. I used Crisco instead of paraffin but the paraffin worked well too. It makes alot!!!
