Peanut Butter Balls

My Granddaughter and Daughter...priceless
First you have to make the peanut butter mixture into balls...
but you can't eat all of them :).

Next we'll dip them into chocolate! Num-A-Nums :)
Can you guess which one my Granddaughter made?

Here's the recipe:
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup soft butter
4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 cups rice krispies

Beat peanut butter and butter together with an electric hand mixer until creamy. Add powdered sugar and mix again. Stir in rice krispies by hand and refrigerate for 2 hours. Roll dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet lines with waxed paper. Freeze the dough balls. Melt chocolate in a double boiler and dip the dough balls into the chocolate until completely covered. It is easier to work in small batches and keep the rest in the freezer until ready to use. They are easier to handle when still frozen. After dipped in chocolate, set each on the waxed paper again and either allow them to set on their own or freeze again to set faster. Makes about 5 dozen.

Let's clean up now.
Do you have any more dirty dishes? I love washing dishes.

Have A Wonderful Day!
Kathi :)

Those pictures are so sweet! I have that recipe and they are so good. Mine don't look as nice as yours though - I always mess up in the dipping area.

What a precious picture of your daughter and grandaugher. I love your daughter's shirt! Your post today made me smile. :) And thanks for the great recipe. I can see these peanut butter balls becoming part of my Christmas baking.

Ok, I had another thought, or a question that is... will you expand a bit on the melting chocolate, since I'm not such a good baker? What chocolate do you use and do you melt it with a little cream, or butter? Also, what do you hold the PB balls with when you dip? Thank you ma'am! :)

Thank you for the birthday greeting. Your warning about eating too much cake comes too late. We have been celebrating and eating for days. This morning we went out to breakfast so I am eating big time again. Talk about eating--that candy sure looks good. Thanks again and have a wonderful Thanksgiving week.

Peanut butter balls are so yummy, but that little granddaughter steals the show. She's precious.

Let's see, I think I'd like to eat the one near the middle that isn't quite roundish. It looks like it was really made with a lot of love.

I want several of each--the Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls and especially the grandchild! I've seen this recipe but not with Rice Crispies. It is so precious to have your two sweet babies in one pic together. Happy Thanksgiving! I love your header and pics on the sidebar.

Me and Mr. D are out working on the shed today.
