HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:

In the large mixing bowl of a stand mixer, place the Peanut Butter, and softened Butter (Not Melted) and using the whisk attachment, mix together until smooth and creamy. Add the Powdered Sugar a little at a time, and continue to mix until all the Powdered Sugar has been added, and the peanut butter mixture is well blended, and creamy. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl, and blend again. Remove the mixing bowl from the mixer, and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator, and using a small cookie scoop, scoop out the Peanut Butter Balls mixture, and roll into 2 inch balls, and then roll the balls in the Rice Krispies Cereal, and place the rolled balls on a Parchment lined cookie sheet. When all the balls have been rolled, place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator, for at least 15 minutes.

While the Peanut Butter Balls are chilling: Place the Chocolate Almond Bark in a microwave safe medium bowl, and microwave for about 1 minute, stopping every 10 seconds to stir the melted chocolate. When the Chocolate is completely melted (Depending on your microwave, it may take less than a minute, or a little more) stir well to smooth chocolate. Remove the Peanut Butter Balls from the refrigerator, and using a fork gently dip the Balls into the melted Chocolate, coating them all over, and letting the excess chocolate drip off. Return the Chocolate covered Balls to the parchment paper on the cookie sheet, and if desired, drizzle a little of the Chocolate over the dipped ball, then immediately sprinkle slightly crushed Rice Krispies on the Balls, before the chocolate hardens. You’ll need to dip the Balls one at a time. When all the Balls have been dipped, and sprinkled with the crushed cereal on top of the balls, place the cookie sheet back in the refrigerator to completely set the chocolate.

When Chocolate is set, about an hour, the no bake peanut butter Balls recipe can be served. Enjoy! If you are looking for more chocolate peanut butter treats be sure to check out my other recipes at the bottom of this post.
