1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups confectioners sugar
2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
2 1/2 cups graham crackers crumbs

1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening

1. Cream together the butter, vanilla, salt and peanut butter. Stir in 2 cups of the confectioners' sugar, nuts and all but 1/2 cup of the graham cracker crumbs. Add the last 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs only if needed; otherwise it may be difficult to mold the balls.

2.Form the mixture by hand into 1 inch balls. Roll each ball in the remaining cup of confectioners' sugar. Set the balls in a single layer on a cookie sheet and refrigerate until firm (about an hour).

3.To Dip Balls In Chocolate: In the top half of a double boiler; melt the chocolate chips and shortening just until the chips are melted. Remove from heat but leave over hot water. Insert a toothpick into the chilled balls or use 2 straws in a chopstick fashion and dip into the melted chocolate until coated. Set on waxed paper until hardened.
