Rice Krispie peanut butter balls

This recipe is actually called Jingle Bell Balls, but since I made them for Valentine treats I just call them Rice Krispie peanut butter balls.

And they really ARE a treat...gooey yet crispy, with bits of chocolate and a slight peanut butter flavor, everyone is sure to love them! We did!

I found the recipe before Christmas and meant to make them during the holidays, but it never happened. I saw it again recently and thought they would be fun for Valentines Day. I'll be making these often, probably in a pan, though, even though the balls are cute, I like EZ....I guess I am just LA-Z!

Happy Valentines Day!
