Ingredients:

  • For the Peanut Butter Base:

    • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter (chunkier for added texture)
    • 6 tablespoons honey
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • For the Crispy Crunch:

    • 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • For the Chocolatey Coating:

    • 1 ½ cups vegan chocolate chips (or your favorite melting chocolate)

Instructions:

  1. Lining Up for Fun: Prepare your muffin pan by laying down cupcake liners. For easy removal, give them a light spray with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Melting Medley: In a saucepan over low heat, melt together the peanut butter, honey, and salt. Stir constantly until everything is smooth and well combined. The delicious aroma will fill your kitchen!

  3. Cereal Time! Once the peanut butter mixture is melted and creamy, remove it from the heat. Now comes the fun part: adding the Rice Krispies cereal! Gently fold the cereal into the peanut butter mixture until everything is evenly coated. You want each bite to be bursting with peanut butter flavor and crispy texture.

  4. Shaping Up: Get your muffin pan ready and evenly distribute the peanut butter and cereal mixture into the cupcake liners. Press down firmly to ensure the mixture sticks together and forms compact balls.

  5. Chocolate Heaven: In a separate saucepan over low heat, melt the vegan chocolate chips. Keep stirring constantly until the chocolate is smooth and completely melted. Be careful not to burn it!

  6. Coating in Perfection: Spoon the melted chocolate over each peanut butter ball in the muffin pan. For an even distribution, gently tilt the pan to coat the sides. If you're feeling fancy, drizzle the chocolate or create decorative swirls on top.

  7. Chilling Out: Place the muffin pan in the refrigerator and let the Peanut Butter Balls with Chocolate Rice Krispies chill for at least 30 minutes, or until firm.

  8. Devour and Enjoy! Once chilled and set, remove the pan from the refrigerator. Peel away the cupcake liners and get ready to indulge in these irresistible treats. Share them with loved ones or keep them all to yourself – we won't judge!

Tips:

  • For a richer peanut butter flavor, use dark chocolate chips for the coating.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
