Graham Cracker Buckeyes

Traditional buckeyes are a holiday favorite, but many people moan about only being able to eat one. This great alternative is a little on the lighter side, but still has that great peanut butter taste!

Community Recipe from


  • 1 cup(s) creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup(s) graham cracker finely ground
  • 1 cup(s) confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cup(s) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoon(s) shortening


  1. Combine peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and confectioners' sugar in a bowl or food processor until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  2. Roll teaspoonfuls of peanut butter mixture into balls. Refrigerate until ready to dip in melted chocolate.

  3. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Melt chocolate chips and shortening together in the top of a double boiler until very liquid. Using a toothpick, dip each ball into chocolate leaving a small amount of peanut butter exposed. Place balls on the cookie sheet and refrigerate until chocolate is firm.
