Editors Note: In the second episode of Next Great Baker the teams were challenged to build a cake for kids. Part of the challenge was to incorporate candy into the cake, in honor of the "Candy Land" cakes that were built, Bobbie Lloyd shares her recipe for Peanut Butter Lollipops.

Ingredients

2 cups crushed graham crackers

2 cups powdered sugar

2 cups peanut butter (creamy or chunky)

1/4 cup melted butter

12 ounces semisweet chocolate

2 ounces butter or shortening

Instructions

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a small bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter and melted butter.

4. A little at a time, add the graham cracker mix to the peanut butter and fold together with a spoon until incorporated. If the mixture seems too sticky add more powdered sugar. If it seems to dry, add more peanut butter.

5. With a small ice cream scoop or with a spoon, scoop approximately 1 tablespoon of dough and roll by hand into a ball. Place the balls onto the parchment-lined sheet tray and stick a lollipop stick into each one. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

6. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate and the butter together over a double boiler, stirring occasionally.

7. Dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate and return to the sheet tray. Refrigerate until cooled and the chocolate has set.

Makes about 2 dozen
