Cereal Isn’t Just For Breakfast Anymore – Part Two - All The Single Girlfriends

Cereal Isn’t Just For Breakfast Anymore – Part Two

Foodie Friday

Mar 23, 2012 by

Loved reading Toby’s post about the use of cereal for more than breakfast-and late night munchies!

Here’s another recipe that has long been a favorite in my family…using Rice Krispies. We used to just make these at Christmas but finally my nephew pointed out they weren’t really a holiday specific treat and now he feels free to request them year round:-))

Peanut Butter Bonbons

Ingredients

1 stick butter
2 cups peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 lb confectioners sugar (roughly 3 cups)
1 12oz pkg chocolate chips

Directions

In a double boiler melt butter and peanut butter together, stir often til smooth
Mix cereal and sugar together
Pour butter/PB mixture over dry ingredients, mix thoroughly
Using a teaspoon, make 1″ balls, place on wax paper covered platter
Chill 2-3 hours
When firm, melt chocolate chips in double boiler til smooth
Dip each ball into chocolate (about 1/2 way deep)
Return to platter and let chocolate harden- about an hour should do it

I suggest keeping the chocolate in the double boiler while you’re dipping the balls, it keeps things moving along much quicker.  Store in the frig in an airtight container. I let them come to room temp before putting them out. This recipe will make between 60-70 bonbons depending on how big you think a 1″ ball is!
