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

Instructions

  • In a food processor, pulse rice krispies 2 to 3 times or until fine.
  • Add peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla and process until smooth and everything is combined.
  • Place the other 1 cup of rice krispies in a bowl.
  • 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.
  • Place ball on a baking sheet.
  • 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.
  • In a double boiler, melt chocolate disks.
  • Set a medium bowl over a kitchen towel, wrapping the towel around it.
  • Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl.
  • Dip each peanut butter ball into melted chocolate, helping yourself with a fork.
  • Place the chocolate coated balls back onto the baking sheet to set.
  • Serve when the chocolate coating is set.

Notes

The recipe makes 20 balls. I counted 4 balls per person.
