Crunchy Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Balls

Ingredients

  • 2 cups crunchy peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 - 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal

Instructions

  1. Combine peanut butter and butter together in a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
