Directions

  1. Line one baking sheet with waxed paper. In large bowl, mix icing sugar, peanut butter, coconut and 75 ml (1/3 cup) butter together until well blended. Gently fold in KELLOGG'S* RICE KRISPIES* cereal until well coated. Form into 2.5 cm (1-inch balls). To make the rolling of balls easier, use lightly dampened hands. Refrigerate on baking sheet 30 minutes.
  2. To make chocolate dip: In medium saucepan, over low heat melt chocolate chips, remaining butter and water together. If mixture is a bit thick for dipping add 1 to 2 tablespoons more hot water.
  3. Using two forks, drop a couple of peanut butter balls in chocolate mixture. Roll balls around in chocolate mixture to coat in chocolate. Chill on waxed paper-lined baking sheet until chocolate is set. Other serving suggestions: peanut butter balls can be served plain or lightly drizzled with chocolate dip. To decorate balls with chocolate, use tip of spoon to drizzle chocolate over balls.

Never, NEVER add water to chocolate chips when you're melting them. It's like mixing oil and water. It turns the chocolate into a fudge-like consistency and there is no way of re-liquifying it. In fact, be careful to not let water come into contact with the chocolate chips at all. I wasted 3 cups of chocolate chips following this recipe's instructions. Take my advice and just add butter or shortening to the chocolate chips to thin out the chocolate. That's what I did with my second batch of chocolate chips and it worked like a charm.

I did not care for this! I am not sure if I went wrong somewhere maybe because i used skippy peanut butter instead of kraft but it was not good, I just finished it and cant even stand the smell. It tastes like the skins off the peanut and just was a waste of time and ingredients.

This was good, but not great. The flavor was kind of meh, and I used amazing peanut butter. I agree with everyone to not use water when melting the chocolate. I didn't attempt it with this recipe but I've failed before because I made that mistake. It might work if you do it *just* right, but why risk it? I think I prefer regular RK treats drizzled in chocolate to this one.

I tried this recipe and it was pretty tasty. I did not put cold water in the chocolate and it worked well. But there was A LOT of rice krispies, so I added more of the other ingredients and it turned out to be fine.

This recipe is pretty good. Don't add cold water while heating chocolate or it congeals, as I found out. You can un-congeal it by adding boiling water to it in small amounts until it becomes liquid again.

I lost my tried and true recipe... so I found this one. I made it twice, as I thought I made a mistake the first time. waste of time and ingredients. it does not make a good ball because the recipe calls for more rice kris pies than is needed. " To make the rolling of balls easier, use lightly dampened hands." My hands needed to be SOAKED to make the balls. As other reviewers have stated.... Never add water to chocolate. I knew that and added Gulf Wax. :D That was the only easy thing about this recipe.
