No-Bake Candy

I love no-bake candy recipes for the holidays. They are great for getting kids involved in the kitchen. Chocolate and peanut butter is my absolute favorite flavor combination. These Rice Krispie Peanut Butter Balls are similar to Butterfinger Balls but they have a crispy texture.

Ingredients Needed

  • 1/4 cup butter– I use salted butter but you can use unsalted.
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter– you can use crunchy if it’s what you like.
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
  • Chocolate Candiquick– or chocolate melting wafers

Instead of using chocolate candiquick, you can use 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips melted with 2 tablespoons of shortening.

Equipment Needed For Rice Krispie Peanut Butter Balls

  • Electric Mixer– to easily mix the peanut butter mixture together. Can be done by hand but takes a lot more effort.
  • Parchment Paper or wax paper
  • Small Cookie Scoop– helpful in making uniform size balls but not necessary.
  • Microwave or Double-Boiler to melt the Chocolate Candi-Quick

Make In Advance

This easy candy can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 days or can be frozen for up to 2 months.
