Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

This recipe comes from my MIL and I used to make them at Christmas but now my daughter Brenda makes them. She was so kind as to send me this pic and allow me to share it here.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp soft butter
2 cups rice krispies
1/2 cup peanuts

Put in fridge for 1/2 hour. Roll into balls. Place on pan and freeze.
Melt 1 cup chocolate wafers or rosebuds with 3 tbsp paraffin.(optional)
Keep melted chocolate in a bowl over hot water while dipping the frozen peanut butter balls. Place them on a pan without touching till they are firm. Need to be kept in a cool place.

    I think it looks like fun.

  10. I've made these for years, barely managing to go a month between making them for one reason or another. They are wonderful if made a little smaller, and put into little paper candy cups, and given as gifts. You can make a bundle of them for bake sales. They pack very nicely, and tend to stay intact better than most confections I've tried over the years. I normally use flaked coconut instead of rice crispies. I'll have to try the crispies, to save money and add a crunch factor. Great idea!!

  11. My grandma used to make these but she put a maraschino in the centre. They were the best! And when her pkg of baking would come, there used to be a fight over these.
