I love baking. It reminds me of my childhood and spending endless cherished moments in the kitchen with my Granny, baking up some of our family’s favorite recipes. Around the Holiday’s especially, Granny would spoil us by whipping up these Peanut Butter Balls that taste like an over-sized crispy Reese’s piece of Heaven. I haven’t made them in years, but wanted a quick no-bake recipe to whip up the other night and these fit the bill. I am now desperate to get them out of my house and give them away before I eat them all!
What you need:
6 Tbsp. Butter (softened)
2 Cups Peanut Butter (I used creamy but you can use crunchy if you prefer an extra bite)
3/4 Box Powdered Sugar
2 1/4 cup Rice Krispies
Melted Chocolate (I used Wilton Chocolate Melts, you can use melted Chocolate Chips though)
What you need to do:
In a mixer, blend together butter and peanut butter. Add powdered sugar and mix well. Pour in the Rice Krispies and stir til mixed. Meanwhile, melt chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.
Roll dough into tablespoon sized balls and set on wax or parchment covered cookie sheet. Once you have formed all the balls, chill in freezer for at least 10 minutes. Once chilled, dip balls in melted chocolate and let set on the prepared cookie sheet. Wait til chocolate has completely set, and enjoy! 🙂
