Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls Recipe and Packaging Tips

This Peanut butter chocolate balls recipe is all over the Internet. Because they are so good. They seem to be a hit with everyone. My tip for packaging, as you can see is placing mini muffin papers in leftover/recycled egg carton holes. I was in an inspired rush to be creative at the moment. Really, I was trying to figure out the best way to store these because nothing I was doing was working effectively. I call it pulling a rabbit out of my hat and that I did. Think, think, think says Poo.. and that is what I did. I collect these until they bulge in my pantry. Just in case, you know a kid craft or something. I had even thrown a bunch away in the recycle bin a week or two before. Lucky for me, I still had a pile rising.

So, after placing mini muffin paper cups in the egg carton holes, place a  peanut butter chocolate ball into each muffin cup in egg hole. You can use this idea for other treats/something else as well. Close the top and tie with string, yarn, ribbon etc...

This is with ribbon.

Ribbon and cotton cooking string.

Now for the recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls or Bon Bons whatever you want to call these.

2 C. Rice Crispies
1 C. Powdered sugar
1 C. Peanut butter

1 lb. Chocolate for melting

In a medium bowl add rice crispies, powdered sugar, and peanut butter. Mix. Roll into small balls and place onto a plate. You want them small because I think the all over mouth flavor when eating one is much better. I tried both to find this out for myself. Of course, make them to your own taste if this is not to your liking. You can cover the balls and chill in the fridge to firm the balls. Melt the chocolate on a double boiler or a bowl over a pot with some water. When chocolate is melted turn off the heat and dip the balls one at a time with a fork. Then place onto wax paper that has been placed on baking sheets or another  clean hard dry surface. Let cool. Eat or give as gifts.
