Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Krispie Candy Recipe

Sunday, December 13, 2009
If you like Peanut Butter these are going to be a new candy on your Christmas baking list.

These are so simple with just using peanut butter, cereal, butter, and powdered sugar then dipped in melted chocolate.

They can be rolled in nuts color sprinkles and left plain to look like a no-bake peanut butter truffle.

These peanut butter balls even freeze well in a sealed tight container.

The recipe has been in the family since the early 1970s and remains a family favorite and most asked for candy treat that I make.

One bite and you'll be hooked on these creamy crunchy confections they are so delicious.

These are a family no-bake favorite holiday cereal-style candy.

I make them every year. He always said that dark chocolate is better than milk chocolate in the flavor.

I usually make a batch of both. The milk chocolate seems to be a little sweeter but I prefer the milk chocolate.

I love no-bake kinds of recipes like this one, they are so easy and really delicious.

The centers are rich with peanut butter and Rice Krispies and dipped they become really decadent and a perfect combination together.

No-Bake Treats.



These are super easy to make and as I mentioned make great gifts for the holiday season.

We just love easy candy like this these require no special tools except for two forks to dip into the melted chocolate, (what can be easier unless you invest in a candy dipping tool).
