Rice Krispies Peanut Butter Balls


Ingredients for the peanut butter balls:
1 cup icing sugar, 1 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut, 1/3 cup butter, melted, 4 cupsRice Krispies cereal.

Ingredients for the icing:
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/4 cup hot water, 1/4 cup butter.

1.  Line one baking sheet with waxed paper.  In large bowl, mix icing sugar, peanut butter, coconut, and 1/3 cup melted butter together until well blended.  Gently fold in Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal until well coated.  Form into 1-inch balls.  To make the rolling of balls easier, use lightly dampened hands.  Refrigerate on baking sheet 30 minutes.

2.  To make chocolate dip:  In medium saucepan, over low heat melt chocolate chips, remaining butter and water together.  If mixture is a bit thick for dipping add 1 to 2 tblspoons more hot water.

3.  Using two forks, drop a couple of peanut butter balls in chocolate mixture.  Roll balls around in chocolate mixture to coat in chocolate.  Chill on waxed paper-lined baking sheet until chocolate is set.
