No-Bake Mondays: Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls. Pick-me-up dessert in 12 minutes.

Do you have 12 minutes today?

Yes? Okay go sneak into the kitchen and make this real quick. I came across five different recipes of peanut butter balls yesterday and instead of choosing just one, I combined a couple to make one that suited my taste.

Few tips. Peanut butter balls owe their crunch to rice crispies. Don't like the crisp? Substitute quick cooking oats for a chewier consistency. I recommend having both, and adding more of whatever you like best. I made mine with more oatmeal and tons of chocolate chips-YUM.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups rice crispies cereal
1/4 cup oatmeal (optional)
semi-sweet chocolate chips to your heart's content

1. Mix peanut butter, honey, vanilla, rice crispies, oatmeal and chocolate chips in a bowl.
2. Scoop with spoon and form into balls. Tip: If the mixture is too sticky that making balls is hard, sprinkle with water. Another tip: make sure your hands are moist when you roll 'em.
3. Chill for two hours.

Five ingredients, 12 minutes to make, perfect quick fix dessert. GO.
