When I was a kid my Grandma used to make these peanut butter chocolate balls every December. More often than not, my mom would try to hide them in the freezer but my sisters and I always found them. We would gorge ourselves on their chocolate-y goodness and come Christmastime, there would be none leftover! To this day they’re one of my favourite treats and they’re the perfect for any occasion.
What you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 2 cups of crunchy peanut butter
- 2 cups of rice crispies
- 1 lb of powder sugar
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 1 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips
What to do:
Start by melting your butter in a saucepan. Once it’s hot stir in the peanut butter until smooth. Add your vanilla then pour into a large bowl. Mix in the powder sugar and rice crispies. Use your hands to make sure the ingredients are all mixed together then roll them into small balls. Stick them in the fridge for 2 hours.
Melt your chocolate chips in a bowl over a pot of boiling water. Stir continuously. Once the chocolate is melted dip the peanut butter balls in and place them onto parchment paper. Sprinkle with Himalayan pink salt. Set the chocolate covered treats in the fridge for a few hours until hard.
Is there anything better than peanut butter, chocolate and salt?? BEST COMBO EVER.
