This is a recipe I got from a neighbor many years ago. I make these sweet and crunchy treats at Christmas and then again for Easter. I've also made these tasty candies using Cocoa Krispies (instead of Rice Krispies) and smooth peanut butter instead of crunchy. Another traditional family favorite!

How To Make crunchy peanut butter balls
In a large bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter, confectioner's sugar and rice krispies.
Mix well with hands until well combined. Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Form chilled peanut butter mixture into 1 1/2" balls and place on prepared cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 35-40 minutes.
When ready to dip peanut butter balls, melt chocolate in microwave, being very careful not to burn.
Dip each egg into melted chocolate and place back onto prepared cookie sheet, drizzling extra chocolate over top to hide and holes left from dipping.
Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to "set", then place into an airtight container with waxed paper between the layers.
If I've used all of the melted chocolate and I have some peanut butter balls left, I usually just wrap them in a square of waxed paper. Just roll them in the waxed paper and twist each end shut.
Makes 25-30 candies, chocolate dipper and/OR wrapped.
