Chocolate and Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 cups Rice Krispie cereal, crushed
1 cup powdered sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon solid vegetable shortening
Start by lining a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine the melted unsalted butter and smooth peanut butter.
Add in the crushed Rice Krispie cereal and powdered sugar. Stir together well.
Form tablespoon size balls and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
In a medium sized bowl add the semi-sweet chocolate chips and solid vegetable shortening. Microwave on high for 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until the chocolate is smooth and glossy.
Using 2 forks, dip the balls into the melted chocolate and roll to coat evenly with chocolate. Place the balls back onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Place into the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes before enjoying.
Keep leftovers chilled and covered in the refrigerator.
