Golf Balls

I got this recipe from my mother several years ago. Not sure where she got it but I can tell you this is the most decadently delicious candy you can possibly imagine. It is always a part of our Christmas baking. I like to put them in petit four papers.

Original recipe makes 6 dozen


1 pound confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 cups chunky peanut butter
1 cup butter
2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 pounds semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Mix sugar, peanut butter, butter, coconut, walnuts, and graham cracker crumbs in a large bowl using hands until thoroughly blended. Roll 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Dip peanut butter balls into the chocolate until they are completely coated. Allow chocolate to harden before serving.
