1. In a large bowl combine peanut butter, icing sugar and Rice Krispies.


2. Place filling in fridge covered for 10 minutes so it firms up a bit to make it easier to roll into balls.


3. Roll filling into small balls pressing to ensure the balls are firm and won’t fall apart.  Roll each ball into a smooth round ball.  Place on a lined cookie sheet.


4. In a microwavable bowl melt chocolate on low using the “Melt Chocolate” setting our your microwave.  Alternatively place the chocolate in a heat resistant bowl over a pot of simmering water and gently melt the chocolate.  Make sure no water splashes into the bowl.  I like to put my bowl inside of a veggetable steamer to it sits nicely above the simmering water.


5. Dip rolled peanut butter balls into the chocolate one at a time and roll around to ensure evenly coated.  Place chocolate covered ball back onto lined cookie sheet.


6. Once all balls are dipped place uncovered cookie sheet into the fridge for about an hour to ensure the chocolate sets before eating.  Or you will get really messy!
