  1. These look good! I have a recipe that uses graham crackers as a base that is really good, too. Years ago I couldn't make them fast enough- 2 boys and a husband- so I started just rolling the peanut butter mixture into balls and dipping one side in the chocolate. I could make 3 batches in the same time it took to one with the cups. I used to use candy molds, too, so there was half the problem. Waiting for them to set up. Love your pretty papers!
