Peanut Butter Balls
My adorable 7th child, he rolled them and dipped them for mom!
This is my version of peanut butter balls. I made them about 30 years ago and the recipe included dates and walnuts but my kids did not care for that! I changed things and added cereal instead. They are a family favorite and my oldest son requested we make him a pyramid of peanut butter balls for his wedding!!!
Now please keep in mind, when it comes to cooking I usually go by how it looks and tastes but baking is totally measured out! Peanut butter balls are an exception in the dessert area and I just add this and that. I tried to measure this very carefully but sometimes I add a little more or less so please remember this is a bit rough.
2 cups peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup crushed up crispy rice cereal
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup butter
Melt together until smooth
Mix peanut butter, powdered sugar and cereal well.
Roll into balls and place on baking sheet.
Dip in chocolate and then refrigerate or freeze to set.
Remove from tray and place in container and store.
