Peanut Butter BALLS

1/2 lb. butter, softened (2 sticks)
1 can flaked coconut
4 cups powdered sugar (1 lb)
1 cup nuts, chopped
1 tsp. vanilla
food grade paraffin wax
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 lb. graham cracker crumbs
1 large pkg. semi-sweet chocolate bits

Stir together butter, peanut butter, coconut and powdered sugar. Let stand for a few minutes. Shape mixture into balls. Melt a 1-inch square of paraffin wax with the chocolate bits in a saucepan. Dip ball into mixture and place on parchment paper.
Cooks Note: Use Baker's Dipping Chocolate or substitute your own tempered chocolate in place of the paraffin, if desired. Refrigerate until serving.
