Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeyes

We're excited today to participate in Pretty Mommy's Holiday Recipe Exchange! The recipe we've decided to feature is a favorite in our family around this time of year, and boasts rich chocolate and savory peanut butter. A killer combo, if I do say so myself.

Without further ado... the RECIPE.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeyes
An AdviceGals Family favorite
3C Rice Krispies cereal
1 stick melted butter
2C peanut butter
1lb powdered sugar

Mix together then add powdered sugar 'till it makes a big ball (**hint - this is where your Kitchen Aid mixer really shines!).
Make walnut sized balls (**we love to use a small ice cream scoop as seen in the photo above) and refrigerate until firm, then dip in the following:

1 large chocolate bar (go Godiva or go home, right?)
1 6-oz. package of chocolate chips
1/8 lb of parafin

Melt parafin in double-boiler, then add chocolate bar and chocolate chips. Stir until smooth. Keep hot while dipping balls. Coo, then ENJOY!
Thanks for stopping by, and make sure to check out Emily over at Big Moon Sky's recipe tomorrow!
