Yum! These delicious morsels are time consuming but oh sooooo decadently addicting! I am a perfectionist at heart (I know this isn't a "healthy" trait, but sometimes I just can't help myself lol!) and the fact that my PB balls look so pitiful will more than likely keep me from making these for anything other than special occasions. I guess I just need to break down and invest in a dipping tool set haha. :) That aside, I think the ratio of PB, sugar and cereal is spot on here. The PB mixture is SUPER easy to work with (at least it was for me), has the right amount of crunch to it and is sweet enough to not rot your teeth. NOTE: To make your chocolate go farther, add 1.5 - 2 T of shortening to it. This thins it out a bit and makes dipping MUCH easier! I'd also like to point out that I was able to make nearly 8 DOZEN balls out of this using my 1 T Pampered Chef cookie scoop!!!!! Obviously, I needed another bag of chips to get the job done, but instead of using chocolate chips (I opted for MILK chocolate for my first 4 dozen), I used WHITE chocolate chips. Because my white chocolate dipped PB balls looked boring (snore, snore), I drizzled them with a touch of melted chocolate. Mmmmmmm.... Thanks for sharing your recipe, Nancy! Since these are usually part of many of my friends and co-workers holiday cookie trays, I think I'll wait until then to indulge. This requires a little too much effort for an everyday treat. :-)
