Equipment

  • saucepan (optional)

Ingredients

  • 1 tblsp butter, melted
  • 1 cup peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
  • 1 cup icing or powdered sugar
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies cereal
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate, chopped or chocolate chips
  • ½ cup toffee bits optional
  • ½-1 cup chocolate chips, semisweet or white chocolate optional
  • sprinkles as needed, to taste

Instructions

  • Clear space in your refrigerator for large plates or baking sheets. Cover plates or baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl combine peanut butter, icing sugar and butter, ideally with a stand mixer or handheld mixer.
  • Add cereal and any other optional ingredient and gently combine.
  • Place 1 to 1 ½ inch balls or blobs on the parchment paper and refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours.
  • Slowly melt chocolate in microwave or on your stovetop. Do not boil or overheat. You just want to warm the chocolate.
  • Take cold peanut butter balls and stab with a small fork, one at a time. Dip and roll around in the chocolate, allow excess chocolate to drip off, return to parchment paper, decorate if desired and then back in the refrigerator to set for another few hours.
  • If you have any extra melted chocolate just pour it on top of a piece of parchment paper and refrigerate. Enjoy!
