These are delicious! I don't have a double-boiler so I just used a regular pot. Also, I must have made mine smaller than 1 inch because I got about 65 balls total. I was concerned that I wouldn't have enough chocolate because of the extra balls but I had plenty. I used mini muffin liners (just like in the photo) and they turned out great. The peanut butter & cereal mixture has a nice texture. I followed the recipe exactly (used Ghirardelli brand) and I'm glad I did. I made these for Christmas goodie bags and was very happy with them.
