Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Noticed that there were quite a few recipes here that used graham crackers - thought you might like a different binding ingredient! This recipe is from the 1978 Farm Journal's Choice Chocolate book & has been a Christmas favorite for years. Have tried both the smooth & chunky peanut butter but the chunky gives the best results & is the one requested most.
