Peanut Butter Balls

Makes 2 Dozen (if you don’t eat any while mixing it!!)


  • 1/4 cup butter, very soft
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 handfuls Rice Krispies, ( I prefer corn flakes, slightly crushed)
  • 1 1/4 c semi sweet chocolate chips (or 4 squares of bakers chocolate)
  • 1 tsp parrafin wax (found in the canning section or get some from Pam as she has lots!).  The wax adds a shine to the chocolate when it is cool.  Use a sharp knife to “peel” wax block.


  1. Cream butter and peanut butter in a bowl with metal spoon.
  2. Add icing sugar and using the back of a metal spoon, mash the icing sugar into the butter mixture until all absorbed.
  3. Add rice krispies or corn flakes and mix well.
  4. Roll into small balls, 1” diameter, “one bite” morsels.  Put balls on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Put in fridge for 30 min.
  5. Melt chocolate and wax on low heat on stove.  Stir frequently
  6. Using a small metal spoon, dip / roll the balls in chocolate till coated. Put back on parchment paper to cool.
  7. Store in covered container.
