Anyone have a good recipe for peanut butter balls.

I've made this several times and it's very good but does make a lot of candy!

PEANUT BUTTER BALLS
Source: a book called, "Christmas Treats", no author listed.
Note: These are also good made with crushed vanilla wafers (omit the teaspoon of vanilla). (12/18/2007)
These are always a hit!
PEANUT BUTTER CREAMS
Beat egg slightly in small mixer bowl. Beat in 1 cup of the sugar, the salt, vanilla, peanut butter and butter/marg. Stir in remaining sugar. If necessary, add more powdered sugar to make firm enough to handle. I almost always have to do this. Sometimes I will also put the dough in the refrigerator for a bit to firm them up as well.
Shape mixture into 1-inch balls, roll balls in peanuts, and refrigerate. Makes about 15-20 balls depending on the size you roll them. You can double the batch as well.
I love peanut butter balls! I think they are my favorite treat at Christmas. Here is the recipe that I make each year.

Peanut Butter Balls
Yields: 72 servings
"It is basically, just what the name implies."
Mix together peanut butter, butter or margarine, confectioners' sugar, and graham cracker crumbs. Shape into 1 inch balls. 2. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in top of double boiler. Dip balls into chocolate mixture and let dry on waxed paper. (Poke each ball with a toothpick for easier dipping.)
Can you handle one more?
Blend butter, corn syrup and vanilla. Mix in sugar and peanut butter. Knead on a surface dusted with powdered sugar if necessary to blend.
Form into balls and place on cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Chill for 1 or 2 hours and dip into chocolate mixture. Place back on waxed paper and chill until coating has set. (12/25/2007)
I have a recipe that i found in like a family circle magazine years ago and use it for our family - they love it!
I just use peanut butter and powdered sugar. I put about 2 cups of peanut butter and just add powdered sugar till I can roll the mixture in a ball. I use melted almond bark and dip the balls and then place on wax paper till hardened. They are always perfect. (11/11/2008)
