Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Ingredients:
1/2 c. butter, softened 
3 c. icing sugar
2 c. crunchy peanut butter
3 c. rice crispies 
3 c. dark or milk chocolate melting wafers

 

Combine the butter, icing sugar, peanut butter, and rice crispies; roll into balls.  Melt the chocolate in 30 second bursts in the microwave, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. 

Note: When melting chocolate, even if it is melting wafers, keep the temperature from getting too hot – if the bowl is getting hot, let the chocolate sit until the bowl is just lightly warm before you put it back in the microwave.

Coat peanut butter balls with chocolate, using a fork to dip them in, a spoon to cover them, and a knife to scrape off the excess (see photos below). Chill in fridge or freezer until set, or leave to set at cool room temperature.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These make excellent hostess gifts!  Decorated them with melted white or peanut butter chocolate, drizzled across the tops… So pretty.

Note: Those white drizzled ones have something special in them. Stay tuned to see what it is next week. 😉

Thanks for reading!

  1. These look great! Was wondering if the chocolate was tempered. Not sure of the date here. Have you posted the contents of the white drizzled bon bons yet?
