1 cup peanut butter creamy or crunchy
¼ cup butter softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal slightly crushed
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. In a large bowl, cream together peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar. Stir in cereal until well combined.
Shape into balls, place on a cookie sheet, and chill for at least 30 minutes. In a large microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate chips and shortening.
Heat for 1 minute and stir, then continue heating for 20-30 seconds and stirring after each interval until chocolate is almost melted. Stir until completely smooth. Dip balls into chocolate and place on a cookie sheet until firm.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days or in the freezer for several weeks.
