Peanut Butter Balls with Rice Krispies
This is a quick and easy treat that might be fun for kids on a play date. It combines the flavors of chocolate and peanut butter with the crunchy delight of rice krispies. Together, this is a very sweet treat, so be sure to make these Peanut Butter Balls with Rice Krispies tiny, eat only a limited few, and chill them well beforehand.
Some ways to bump up both flavor and nutrition is to use organic peanut butter. Peanut butter is chock full of good nutrition, including the good fats, lots of protein, and plenty of vitamins, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories. Choosing an organic peanut butter with zero added sugar or salt will make these balls taste more peanut buttery and not contribute more sugar to the blend. As well, choose the darkest chocolate your kids will eat. Or, choose a dark chocolate and dip the balls in to that chocolate to cover most of the ball, then simply top it with a lighter chocolate the kids might find more palatable. Either way, ensuring that these treats are well chilled will help to cut the sweetness factor.
Rice Krispies are a fun breakfast cereal that has been around for many years. The snap, crackle and pop comes from the design of the individual kernels, if you can believe it. Adding milk actually causes the kernels of the cereal to smartly collapse, creating a pop! and snap! And that is the sound you hear when you eat it. Regardless, this cereal is a popular one with kids and adults alike. One good thing about this recipe is that if you buy organic chocolate and peanut butter you have a wheat free treat. So people who are sensitive to gluten can enjoy this snack right along with everyone else. And that is always nice. Try this soon!
