Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup rice krispies cereal
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

for chocolate crunch coating:

  • 1 cup rice krispies cereal
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate disks
US Customary - Metric

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, pulse rice krispies 2 to 3 times or until fine.
  2. Add peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla and process until smooth and everything is combined.
  3. Place the other 1 cup of rice krispies in a bowl.
  4. Scoop tablespoon size balls and roll in your hands into a smooth ball. Roll in rice krispies trying to adhere as many cereal to the ball as you can, to cover the surface.
  5. Place ball on a baking sheet.
  6. Repeat with the rest of the peanut butter mixture until it's all gone. Place all balls on baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. They should firm up a little bit, but won't be hard.
  7. In a double boiler, melt chocolate disks.
  8. Set a medium bowl over a kitchen towel, wrapping the towel around it.
  9. Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl.
  10. Dip each peanut butter ball into melted chocolate, helping yourself with a fork.
  11. Place the chocolate coated balls back onto the baking sheet to set.
  12. Serve when the chocolate coating is set.
