Oh the Peanut Butter Ball, basically a homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. These morsels would probably rank in my top 3 favorite treats of all time. Here is the recipe if you’d like to try them for yourself.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
1 cup crunchy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 pkg. (14oz.) chocolate candy coating or 1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine peanut butter and butter. Add Rice Krispies and sugar, mix until evenly combined. Portion cereal mixture, using a rounded measuring teaspoon. Roll into balls and set aside (hint- if you wet your hands slightly when rolling the balls, your hands won’t get coated with the mixture, also the balls will hold a nice round shape). On top of a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Dip each peanut butter ball in coating, roll around and set to dry on waxed paper. Garnish with sprinkles or a drizzling of white chocolate. Refrigerate until firm.
About 90 calories per ball… so don’t eat just one!
