Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

I received this recipe from a friend years ago and finally decided to make them.  Why did I wait so long? These are so delicious.  If you are a heavy chocolate dipper like I apparently am, you may want to make a recipe and a half of the chocolate dip.

4 TBS butter (do not melt)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (finely grind in a blender or food processor)
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
2 cups chunky style peanut butter
1 - 12 oz pkg (2 cups) chocolate chips
1/4 bar paraffin wax, shaved
Mix together the butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and peanut butter.
Roll into balls, place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.  Refrigerate overnight.
Melt the chocolate chips and paraffin wax in a double boiler.  Dip the candy in the melted chocolate and set set on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.  Place the candies in the refrigerator for a few minutes until completely cooled.  When dipping the candy, keep the double boiler on the heat to keep the chocolate warm.
Makes about 60 candies
