Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups creamy peanut butter

  • 3

    tbls butter

  • 1/2

    tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2

    cups powdered sugar, sifted

  • 3

    cups rice cereal (rice krispies)

  • 1

    lb. milk chocolate chips or bar

  • 1/4

    slab paraffin wax (found in baking aisle) optional

Directions

In a large pot, combine peanut butter and butter over low heat until melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla, sifted powdered sugar and cereal. Stir to combine. Roll into balls and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. If they are sticking to your hands, run your hands under cold water. Freeze or refrigerate until firm. Using a double boiler (or the microwave if you are comfortable melting the chocolate this way) melt the chocolate and wax (if you are using the wax). The wax helps make a traditional glossy thin coating. With only chocolate the consistency will be thicker (you can also dilute with a tsp of cooking oil). Stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and dip each ball into the chocolate until coated. Return to wax paper-lined sheets to cool. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
