Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls
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.
