Chocolate Peanut Butter Bon Bons

Chocolate and peanut butter…. basically the best combination ever! My mom and I have been putting together cookies boxes for the holidays for as long as I can remember.  We always added these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bon Bons to the boxes and they turned into everyone’s favorite.  My mom got this recipe from my grandma and I am FINALLY sharing it with the world.  This was too good to keep to ourselves and I was very excited to show everyone how to make it on the set of Home and Family on The Hallmark Channel.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bon Bons 

1 pound powdered sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter; room temperature
2 cups peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies; crushed
1/2 pound candy coating chocolate; I like milk chocolate or dark chocolate

Instructions:

*Cream butter and peanut butter together
*Add powdered sugar
*Add in Krispies
*Mix until well combined
*Scoop out and roll into about 1 inch balls
*Refrigerate for at least 2 hours
*Once chilled melt the chocolate by placing it in a bowl over a pot of simmering water (also known as a double boiler) being careful the water isn’t touching the bowl
*Use a fork to dip the cold bon bons into the chocolate
*Tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate
*Place on a sheet of wax paper to set up

*If you want to add the pretty drizzled look you can place the melted chocolate in a plastic bag and cut off the tip, then with a back and forth motion drizzle the chocolate over the bon bon

*When doing this you want to make sure that the bon bons have completely set up otherwise it will look melted
