Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted (salted or unsalted—either is fine)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
  • 8 ounces vanilla almond bark*
  • 6 ounces white chocolate chips
  • sprinkles for topping optional

Instructions

  1. Place the peanut butter and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30-second intervals in the microwave, stirring, until melted and smooth. (You can also do this on the stove over low heat.)
  2. Pour into a medium mixing bowl and stir in Rice Krispies and powdered sugar. (Mixture will be fairly dry and crumbly.)
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the almond bark and white chocolate chips together in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water.
  4. Shape the peanut butter mixture into 1-inch balls and use a fork to dip them in the chocolate. Tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate, then set on the baking sheet.
  5. Top with sprinkles (if desirethen refrigerate until set.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month. (Put wax paper between layers of the peanut butter balls so they don’t stick together.)

Recipe Notes

  • *Almond bark is also called candy coating or candy melts; you can typically find it in the baking aisle next to the chocolate. If your grocery store doesn’t carry it, check at a craft store.
  • To get a smooth coat of chocolate you might need to dip your peanut butter balls twice; refrigerate to set the chocolate in between coats. (Or just cover imperfections with sprinkles.)

Variations

  • If you prefer regular chocolate, use regular chocolate chips and chocolate almond bark instead of white chocolate
  • If you use the above variation, try half butterscotch chips and half chocolate chips—it’s delicious
  • Chopped salted peanuts or chopped Oreos are fun alternative toppings if you don’t use sprinkles
  • Drizzle dark chocolate over the chilled peanut butter balls for a really dramatic garnish
