Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls

This a new favorite treat for me.  I first had these Christmas 2009, after my friend Ashlee told me about how good they were.  She was right, AMAZING!!  I tried the recipe and have been hooked ever since.  Great gluten-free dessert.


2 cups creamy peanut butter (or crunchy if you prefer)
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
3 cups crisp rice cereal
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon coconut oil

Place peanut butter and softened butter into a mixer, blend until smooth.  Slowly add the powdered sugar, then the cereal.

Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave for a minute, check then stir, possibly add 30 more seconds to melt.  The chips should look shiny when they're ready to be mixed smooth.

Roll peanut butter mixture into balls, using about a tablespoon each time.  Roll balls in melted chocolate with a spoon & remove, place on a baking sheet covered in wax paper.  Allow to cool and for chocolate harden.  
*Drizzle with melted white chocolate if you wish.
