Another Christmas favorite of mine – Peanut Butter Balls.  Just love those suckers!  One of the things I am bringing to Christmas (lunch) Dinner is the cookies and peanut butter balls.  Since we ate dinner with some friends last night, we made these up to take over there – and now I’ve got them made for Christmas as well.  Here’s a plate of the cookies and peanut butter balls!

Yum!  Now, my pb balls aren’t very prettily coated in chocolate because Matthew and Adam did the chocolate part today, but that’s ok – they still taste good!   Here’s the recipe I use…

Peanut Butter Balls

1 c peanut butter (recipe says crunchy – I use creamy cause I don’t like nuts)

1 c rice krispies

1 c powdered sugar

2 T melted margarine

almond bark (or other melting chocolate)

Mix all ingredients (except chocolate) in a bowl.  Slightly chill.  Roll into small balls.  Chill.  Dip in chocolate (I use the almond bark that comes in cubes – like an ice cube tray – and I use half chocolate and half white chocolate – or vanilla).  Chill.  Eat.

That’s it!  Really easy and tasty!  Here’s the card I took over with it – this is a re-take on one I did last Christmas.  It’s one of the cards we made at the class I did at my Dad’s work earlier this month.  I stamped up the extras this afternoon and used one today.  The rest I stamped with thanks so I can use them as thank-you’s after Christmas!

I hope you are all ready for Christmas – cause man – it’s getting crazy out there at the stores!  The boys and I went to Target yesterday and it was a madhouse!  I think the toy area was just plain ransacked!!
