Gluten Free! I rolled the peanut butter balls in the chocolate. Very good. I used the easy melt chocolate which turned up nice smooth chocolate with quick cleanup. Also if you don't like the peanut butter sticking spray cooking spray in the bowl measuring cup and on the mixing whisk. Came off clean and was easy to measure. Read More

Made the recipe as-is. I don't put them in the little paper cups though just put them on parchment paper to set. Always delicious and perfect. They freeze well also up to a few months so make a large batch! Read More

I was looking for a recipe to make with ingredients I already had in the kitchen. I ran across this recipe and made. OMG they are wonderful and easy. I used a small scoop to make balls and placed in tiny liner cups. Then I spooned chocolate on top like icing. Perfect the best! The rice krispies add a nice little crunch when eating. Read More

Not bad. Had to have seconds. Not necessary to put in little cups. Just use parchment paper and dip one side of balls in chocolate. Read More

These are tasty but very rich and sweet. They reminded me a lot of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups but with rice krispies added. I prefer desserts that have at least a little redeeming health value so I probably won't be making them again. Nothing against this recipe - that's just my own issue. Everyone who tried them liked them. Read More
