This past weekend the girls and I made Chocolate Covered Rice Krispie Peanut Butter Balls to save for Christmas. They were SO easy to make and turned out delicious. Here is the recipe we used:
Chocolate Covered Rice Krispie Peanut Butter Balls
- 2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 4 Tbs. butter, melted
- 4 cups rice krispies
Mix everything together and roll into balls and place on wax paper. Chill for 15-20 minutes.
While peanut butter mixture is chilling melt in double boiler:
- 1 bag (16 oz) of chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable shortening
Dip the balls into the chocolate to coat and place in fridge to set up. Makes approximately 4 dozen.
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
