Very good - reminds me of my mom's Peanut Butter balls! My only comments - I would refrigerate a the mix (dough) a few minutes before trying to form into balls, otherwise they're a sticky mess. Secondly, 1 cup choc. chips just b-a-r-e-l-y covered all of them (I got 29 balls - FYI). Might want to dip sparingly or add a 1/4 c. choc chips to the recipe. Otherwise great, and easy! enjoy!


These are good little morsels that taste like peanut butter cups. Definitely increase the chocolate by at least another 1/4 cup. I highly recommend refrigerating the formed balls for a little bit to help firm them up. It really helped when dipping them into the warm chocolate. I think I will crush the cereal a little next time. Kids loved them.


I have used a recipe very similiar to this for years. I put mini paper cups inside of mini-cupcake pans and pat the rice crispie mixture into the bottom then top with chocolate. Easier to freeze, store and transport.
