Peanut Butter Balls *RAWR!*

I made what has become a much asked for sweet I make tonight. So I thought I'd take pictures [step-by-step] and what-not for a change :D


Original Recipe:
via Mary Sheirden
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 tbsp butter
1 cup icing sugar
1/2 coconut (opitional)
2 cups Rice Krispies

Mix all together, and roll into balls. Melt in a double boiler 2 tbsp or more para-wax add one package of chocolate chips.

What I Do:

Toss together 1 cup icing sugar, and 2 cups Rice Krispies in a bowl.

Mix in 1 cup smooth peanut butter, and 1 tbsp margarine--


--with my hands.

It is rather messy [but it doesn't mix as well with a spoon and it risks crushing the rice crisps]


Roll into small balls [D:], and place on trays covered in wax-paper.

Then melt about 2/3 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips [*secret* and a pinch of table salt ;P *secret*] in a double boiler or in a bowl over a pot of boiling water.

Then I coat each ball in chocolate using a semi-tricky duel spoon method.

Set in fridge to cool until chocolate has hardened [I find setting in a cool place makes the coating shinier/nicer than letting harden at room temp' (which is odd because my experience with chocolate has been that chilling it makes it cloudy and/or gritty)]


I took this to play with my camera's Macro setting :P Doesn't it look cool~ :D
