delicious [graham cracker-peanut butter-chocolate] balls

Sometimes I get the urge to make things. Usually it's with paper and crafty things, but on Sunday, it was with chocolate and delicious things.

This is how it went [in abridged, true to my personality form]:

So you take about one package of graham crackers and smush those up real tiny. I used the plastic bag, wooden spoon method because it's fun to hit things.
Then you add about a cup of peanut butter and mix it on up. You need enough PB to keep everything together, but the mixture should be dry-ish. 

Once everything is good and mixed, roll it into good sized balls, put it on the wax paper and stick it in the freezer for 45 minutes.
Then you take those out of the freezer, and melt the bag of chocolate chips in a separate bowl. I left some out to try and keep for decoration, but they didn't stick, so I ended up melting those too for more chocolate. Just melt the whole bag to save yourself time.
Roll the balls in the melted chocolate by gently tossing them in the bowl, rolling them around with a spoon, and digging them out. The recipe I found suggests rolling them in bits of candy to add flavor, or tiny chocolate chips for decoration, but I didn't have any of that shenanigans.

Throw them on the tray, stick it back in the freezer for another hour, and presto! You've got yourself some delicious, crowd pleasing balls. Enjoy.

Love this. I'm always looking for little mini-baking projects and never seem to have all the ingredients in my house and I'm (obviously) too lazy to run to the grocery store for specialty stuff. Thanks for sharing :)
