Krisp Kringles

Can your teeth handle one more holiday sweet before they start to hurt? If so, here's the sweet you need to include on your holiday cookie platter. They're quick and easy to make, and they're no bake! And if you're like me, you most likely have some leftover melted chocolate from some other holiday goodie that you've saved and here's the perfect time to use it.

Krisp Kringles

1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups smooth peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs
2 cups rice cereal
3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup mini-chocolate chips
2 (12 ounce) packages of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 TBSP food grade cocoa butter or 1 TBSP shortening

In large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter and vanilla. I just used a spatula to do this.

Add the graham cracker crumbs, rice cereal, powdered sugar and mini-chocolate chips.

Take off your rings and get your hands dirty. Combine all ingredients well, then roll into 1 inch balls. Place on wax paper and freeze for a half hour or so while you melt the remaining chocolate.

In double boiler, melt chocolate chips and cocoa butter or shortening. Stir until smooth. Dip balls into chocolate and place on wax paper to set chocolate. Let chocolate harden and store balls in airtight container at room temperature.

YUM! My problem, my teeth never hurt. I can just keep eating the holiday goodies :). I just made peanut butter balls.

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy Gavin! Look forward to some pictures!

Wow! I can't believe how easy these look and how many different ingredients are packed into them. I love making truffles... now I've got a new kind to try.

Those look amazing, Mags! And they're egg free so I can bring them to Christmas (my nephew is allergic to egg). Love all the different ingredients too! Thx. :)

I just bought some brown rice puffed cereal (I had no idea there was such a thing), so these are going on my list!

Sue said...

I am going to make some of these tomorrow, with a couple little changes for what I have on hand! Thanks, Mags!
