Last week, I made some No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars using Ritz Crackers. And, they were very good.
But, let's say you wanted to share this yumminess with someone else. And, let's say that you wanted to present them in a way that would really impress. What do you do? You turn them into truffles. But, not just any truffles. If you've seen my Muddy Buddy Madness before, then you know what I had to do - Muddy Budd-ify them!
That's right. I formed that peanut buttery layer into little balls, dipped them in a mixture of chocolate and peanut butter, and dusted them with some powdered sugar. Great!

Ingredients

FOR THE COOKIE DOUGH

1 c
butter or margarine, melted
2 c
graham cracker crumbs (use the boxed kind, or grind them in a food processor. tiny granules.)
2 c
powdered sugar
1 c
+ 4 tablespoons peanut butter

FOR THE COATING

1 c
semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 c
peanut butter
2 c
powdered sugar (to coat)

Step-By-Step

1In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners’ sugar, and peanut butter until well blended.
2Form the mixture into 1-inch balls and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
3Put powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside.
4Melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter in the microwave or a double boiler.
5Stir together to combine.
6Dip the balls in the chocolate-peanut butter mixture and drop them in the powdered sugar to coat (it's easiest if you just sort of shake the bowl to move the truffle around).
7Put the truffle in your hand and shake off the excess sugar.
8Let sit on some wax paper to let the chocolate set.
