My second favorite Christmas treat are the Peanut Butter Balls that Colorado Sister (aka Suburban Misfit) makes every year. I LOVE peanut butter and chocolate so I really can’t get enough of these, so Colorado Sister usually makes me a batch all my own. Honestly, I could probably live off of them if I absolutely HAD to.
Peanut Butter Balls
2 cups Rice Krispies, crushed
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 stick of butter, softened
1 pound of powdered sugar
Mix the Rice Krispies, peanut butter and butter until well combined then add the powdered sugar gradually while stirring until well combined. Roll the dough into small balls and refrigerate 1-2 hours. Follow the directions on the melting chocolate to heat it up. Roll the peanut butter balls in the chocolate and place on wax paper to dry.
Tips: Colorado Sister works for Udi’s, a Colorado-based company that makes gluten-free baked goods (their chocolate chip cooks are AWESOME), and is always on the look out for ways to make her recipes gluten-free. This one is very easy to do, just by substituting Gluten Free Rice Krispies (made with brown rice) for the regular Rice Krispies.
