Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
(I need a new name for this)
Recommended Serving: 1-3 fatties

2 Cups of Graham Cracker Crumbs
1LB box of Powdered Sugar
1 Cup of Vegan Margarine
1 Cup of Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Bag of Vegan Chocolate Chips
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
½ tsp Almond Extract

Mix the graham cracker crumbs with the margarine, peanut butter, powered sugar, vanilla and almond extract. Shape the mixture into 1 inch balls and roll around in your hands to make perfect circles. *Hint: you can purchase a small ice cream scoop for things like this to make the portions consistent.

Use a double boiler or one pan that is slightly larger than the other with water filled and the other pan floating on top, and place over medium heat. Pour the vegan chocolate chips into the empty pan and stir frequently until it is melted though. Remove the pan from the heat but keep it over the hot water so that the chocolate does not harden up when you roll the peanut butter balls into the chocolate. Allow them to cool on wax paper before moving to an airtight container. I like to store these in the refrigerator. These are excellent for holiday parties and no one can believe they are vegan!
