Recipe for Chocolate Crispy Snack Balls


    Chocolate Crispy Snack Balls (T&T)

    These are great little snacks to have around the house for when you have an urge for something but don't know what.

    1 (18 ounce) jar peanut butter, creamy or chunky
        (I sometimes use chunky for the extra crunch)
    2 cups Rice Krispies
    1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
    1 cup melted semisweet chocolate

    Melt chocolate in a double boiler until smooth. Set aside.

    In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter, Rice Krispies and confectioners' sugar, mixing until all ingredients are incorporated and forms a dough.

    Pinch off 1-inch pieces and roll into a ball (I have a digital scale and weigh out pieces of dough for uniform balls). With a toothpick or fork, dip the balls into chocolate until totally coated (I sometimes roll them in finely chopped peanuts if I am using creamy peanut butter). Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Chill 30 minutes and enjoy.

    I sometimes add finely chopped dates or raisins.
