Family Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

After talking to my mom about the adventurous day she had with my aunt and cousins when they baked their holiday cookies, I decided I had to make these peanut butter balls. Apparently these were the big hit of the day, and although I didn't have quite the experience they did (12 Bellevue firemen showed up to my aunt's house!), I think my version turned out just as yummy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls (Snowballs)
From the cookbook my mom (K) made me!

1 cup peanut butter (I used natural, chunky)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional if you use chunky PB)
170 g dark chocolate
170 g milk chocolate

Cream together butter, powdered sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Add Rice Krispies and nuts. Roll into small balls. 

Melt together the two types of chocolate in the microwave, removing every 20-30 seconds to stir. 

Dip peanut butter balls in the chocolate mixture. Use a slotted spoon or fork to remove the balls and place them in a baking dish lined with wax paper. Chill in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated in an air-tight container.
