Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Unsalted butter
  • 2 Cups Peanut Butter (I like the chunky for this)
  • 1 lb Powdered sugar
  • 2 Cups Rice Crispies
  • 12 oz SemiSweet Chocolate for dipping

Directions

  • Place butter and peanute butter in the top of a double boiler/Bain Marie; stir until melted. Work in the Powdered Sugar and Rice Krispies.
  • Shape resulting filling into 1 inch balls.
  • Refrigerate for 1 - 2 hours.
  • In a double boiler (again) melt 12 oz. chocolate:
  • If you are using Semi-sweet, do not heat above 110 degrees; if you use milk, or white chocolate, do not heat above 100 degrees.
  • Dip each peanut butter nugget, letting excess drip off. Place each dipped Peanut butter ball onto a baking sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment - you can also set a rack in a jelly roll pan to let excess continue to drip off.
  • If chocolate is not setting fast enough, place baking sheet in refrigerator.
  • Store in an air tight container in refrigerator for 2 weeks.

Notes

I loved these when I was a kid, especially when we got to dip them in the chocolate, although I think more chocolate ended up on my face than on the peanut butter ball I was dipping...
