Darcy's Peanut Butter Balls

Today's bit of love comes in the form of a recipe of the most favorite treat at last night's ward party. Darcy was kind enough to run home and get me the recipe for my blog today. I walked around the entire building with a few on a plate, asking, "Did you make these?" And the most frequent answer was, "No, but I want to know who did!" So here's Darcy's very nummy and simple treat.

1/4 cup melted butter or margerine
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all together and make into balls. Chill, then dip each ball into melted chocolate or melted chocolate chips. They freeze well.

However, last night, Darcy had made spread them onto a cookie sheet then frosted them with the melted chocolate. Then, she drizzled or used a frosting tube of white frosting over the chocolate. They were very thin (about as thick as an oreo, maybe) and the little tiny white swirls all over them looked so festive. She'd cut them into about 1 1/2 " squares and had them on a platter. They looked so dang cute and delicate! I wish I'd taken a picture. Seriously, the hit treat of the evening! I'll make them and photograph them asap! Enjoy!
