25 Acre Salted Chocolate PB Balls

We all need a little sweet & salty treat now and then.  For the past couple of days I’ve been craving chocolate and today I caved!  The following recipe makes 25-30 balls of tasty goodness to help pacify that sweet tooth.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 & 1/2 Cups Crisp Rice Cereal 
  • 1 Bag Milk Chocolate Chips

Slightly melt the butter and peanut butter in a microwave save bowl.  Stir well and combine with the powdered sugar and the cereal.  If your mix is too dry, add a little corn syrup, honey or maple syrup.  If the mix is too wet, simply add a little more powdered sugar.  You could even use bran flakes or a multi-grain cereal for a healthy boost.  Once incorporated, roll balls 1-inch in size and set aside to chill.  In the meantime, melt the milk chocolate chips in a double boiler or via the microwave.  Dip chilled PB balls in the chocolate and place on a non-stick mat.  Sprinkle with sea salt, crushed peanut, flax meal, wheat germ or anything you can think of!  Allow to cool and enjoy!
