Scary Eye Balls (Peanut Butter Balls)

*Used a Peanut Butter Ball recipe and Jazzed it up a little.*
*Make sure to use white chocolate bark. I used White Chocolate chips and needed to add A LOT of shortening to make the white chocolate smooth*


4c. confectioner's sugar
1-1/2c. smooth peanut butter
1c. (2 sticks) butter
1-1/3c. graham cracker crumbs
2c. white chocolate chips (16 oz.)
1 TBL shortening


In a large mixing bowl, combine confectioner's sugar, peanut butter, butter (melted), and graham cracker crumbs. Mix until well combined. Shape into 1-in. balls (don't make too big, they are very rich) and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Place in freezer. Melt chocolate chips and shortening. Remove balls from freezer and use a toothpick to dip each ball into the white chocolate. Place back on cookie sheet. Use extra chocolate to color and decorate as you choose. I used red food coloring to color chocolate for eye veins. I topped with an m&m (for the colored part of eye) and piped a dot of melted chocolate chips for the pupil.
