Holiday Baking - Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

I got the recipe for these from a supervisor when I was a college co-op.  I've made them nearly every year since.  I love keeping them in a tin in the garage so they're a little chilled - yum, yum!  They're similar to buckeyes, but I think there's enough difference to warrant a different name.  As an aside, we had a family friend who made buckeyes each year, but she would say "oh, screw it!" and make them enourmous so she wouldn't have to make as many.  I sort of get that, but these don't form well if they get tooo big.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

  • 1 stick margerine, melted
  • 3 C powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 3/4 C peanut butter (can be chunky or smooth - I use chunky)
  • 3 C Rice Crispies
  • 2 C (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 bar parrafin


Mix first four ingredients together and roll into 1 1/2" balls.  Melt chocolate and parafin together over low heat.  Using a toothpick, dip balls into chocolate and drop onto waxed paper.  Use leftover chocolate to dribble over holes left by toothpicks.  Best served chilled.  Makes about 60 balls.
