Grandma Harris' Peanut Butter Balls
makes about 24-30 balls
1 c. smooth peanut butter
1/4 c. butter (or margarine)
1 1/3 c. icing sugar
1 1/2 c. rice krispie cereal
1 package milk chocolate chips
Cream together peanut butter and butter until combined and smooth. Add icing sugar and stir until combined. The dough will be a bit tight. Add the rice krispies and stir until all combined.
Take about a tablespoon full and roll into a ball between your hands. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Continue until all balls have been rolled. Place in the refrigerator (or outside because its cold enough now) and cool for about 30 minutes.
In a bowl add chocolate chips. Place the bowl over a pot of lightly boiling water to melt making sure no steam enters the bowl or else your chocolate will seize.
Roll the balls in the chocolate and place on parchment once again. Chill to set chocolate.
These can be frozen.
Makes for a great gift - I wouldn't mind if a package of these showed up on my doorstep!
