I had a chance to go exploring on Pinterest and around the Blogosphere the other day, and I came across this awesome recipe to try Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls from Mom Mart. So I thought I’d try them myself, and give you guys some of my pointers on some of her steps! Plus, she just made a delicious recipe.
I can safely and totally tell you that these tasted delicious! I definitely had a couple, but I was sure to make sure to eat them over a plate. These can definitely get messy while eating them – especially if they didn’t cool for a long amount of time or if you didn’t spend too much strength turning them into little balls, so make sure to eat these somewhere where you can easily clean up the mess. I’ll definitely admit one of my splattered into little pieces all over the floor after the first bite.

Now, here are my tips:
For one, definitely realize that this is going to get all over your hands. Under your fingernails and everything! So if that really bugs you (or if you don’t want to smell peanut butter on your hands at least three or four times even after you’ve scrubbed them with soap), I recommend some non-scented gloves.
For two, definitely OVERestimate on the pan size you need. We had to switch half-way through. It’s kinda insane how much six cups of Rice Krispies is. It’s better to have more-than-enough room than not-enough room. Also, as soon as you’re done making these treats, rinse off the pots. It makes them easier to clean later if you don’t have crusted-on Rice Krispie bits everywhere.
For three, when making the Rice Krispie balls, feel free to put some strength into it! You want all of the balls to be compact and all squished together. Remember that you’re going to have to dip these into chocolate later, and the weak balls are going to fall apart once the suction of the chocolate bowl gets ahold of them. So use as much pressure as you can manage to get them all looking like nice, respectable, well-circled balls. Don’t be too afraid about breaking them.
So that’s all I got for you! We had a blast making these, and I’m excited to try out more recipes and treats for my family!
