Peanut Butter Balls
This peanut butter balls recipe has been passed down in our family for several generations. There's not a Christmas that goes by that we don't make them.
- 1 1/2 cup crispy rice cereal
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 2/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup butter room temperature
- 1 bag chocolate chips
Place cereal in a baggie and use a rolling pin to crush it.
In a medium bowl add peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar.
Add the crushed cereal to the top of ingredients.
Mix ingredients until completely combined. It should form a dough-like ball.
Roll into small balls. Place in fridge for at least 2 hours.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave 2/3 cup at a time. Add a splash of corn oil to melted chocolate, if needed, to thin it out.
Roll balls in melted chocolate and place on parchment paper.
Add the sprinkles and gingerbread men candy while the chocolate is still wet, optional.
Ready to eat when chocolate is set! You can pop them in the fridge to help speed up this process if you'd like.
