Tablespoon's Peanut Butter Balls

If you want an easy recipe for candy, this recipe is for you. I have to say that compared to my Great Aunt Barbara's recipe for peanut butter balls, these aren't nearly as good so check back and in the next week I hope to have her recipe posted. It's more time consuming, but I think it tastes better.


1 cup milk chocolate chips

2 tablespoons water
1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal

  1. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. In 1-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips and water over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool.
  2. In medium bowl, stir together peanut butter, powdered sugar and corn syrup until well blended. Stir in cereal until evenly coated.
  3. Lightly spray hands with cooking spray. For each candy, roll 1 tablespoon of mixture into 1 1/2-inch ball; place balls on cookie sheet and press slightly so bottoms of balls are flat.
  4. Spoon about 1 teaspoon cooled chocolate onto each ball. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm. Store in covered container in refrigerator.
