Classic Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls with Rice Krispies for extra texture and crunch. A quick and easy candy recipe.
What do you get when you combine peanut butter, chocolate, and Rice Krispies in a simple no-bake dessert recipe? You get one happy family of taste testers.
I’ve shared my family’s Peanut Butter Balls (aka Buckeyes) recipe here before (and it’s one of my most popular recipes).Once you’ve made them, you’ll understand our love for those chocolate peanut butter treats.
All of these recipes make terrific Christmas Candies for gifting or for snacking. It’s a tradition in our family to make these each year.
These Peanut Butter Balls with Rice Krispies have become another friend and family favorite over the years.
I fondly remember enjoying Peanut Butter Balls with my family as a child. It brings back happy childhood memories every time I bite into one.
I’m delighted to share this recipe with you here so you can experience the same joy with your family!
