Peanut Butter balls

_DSC0970

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.
