Peanut Butter Bon Bons

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I am sharing a recipe for a dessert I recently made for Coffee Hour, which is a  food/coffee/socializing event held by my department every week. These treats were super easy to make and uber delicious (provided you like peanut butter)! Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Bon Bons

From the Recipe Hall of Fame Dessert Cookbook

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup peanut butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup graham crackers, crushed

1/4 cup chopped nuts

1/2 cup flaked coconut

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate

3 Tbsp. Crisco

Instructions:

Melt butter and peanut butter together. Add to dry (next 4) ingredients. Make 1-inch balls. Melt chocolate and shortening. Dip the balls into melted chocolate and put on wax paper until hardened. Yields 3-4 dozen.

Notes:

I didn’t have any nuts or coconut on hand, but the bon bons were still very tasty. Also, I had leftover chocolate so I made another batch and put the extras in the freezer. Bonus!

After dry ingredients have been added to the melted butter and peanut butter

Mmmmm
