Goobers - Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

I got this recipe from a friend back in high school so it's been around for a long time. She used to make it for all our cheerleading holiday parties. Her family called them Goobers, but I see them mostly known as peanut butter balls or buckeyes. Whatever you call them, they are good. 

1 cup confectioners sugar
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 package chocolate chips
1 Tbsp vegetable shortening

In a small bowl, combine the confectioners sugar and cracker crumbs. 

In a saucepan, heat butter and peanut butter on low heat until it's melted. 

Let your dog lick the peanut butter spoon and laugh! 

Mix the sugar/crumb mix with the butter/peanut butter mix until mixed well. Roll into small balls and place on wax paper. 

In a small sauce pan, heat the chocolate chips and vegetable shortening on low heat until melted. Making sure you don't burn the chocolate. Once melted dip your balls into the chocolate until coated and return to wax paper.  Let cool in the refrigerator covered in wax paper for about an hour. 

Store in a container with a lid so they don't dry out.
