Rice Krispie Peanut Butter Bon Bons

2 cups peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1 pound confectioners' sugar, sifted
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a medium saucepan, melt peanut butter together with butter. Do this over very low heat. This can also be done in the microwave; just watch it carefully.

In a large mixing bowl, combine confectioners' sugar with rice cereal.
Pour hot peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture.
Let cool a couple minutes, then blend with your hands.
Form 1/2-inch balls.
Immediately place the dish of peanut butter balls into the refrigerator to cool.

Melt the chocolate chips in another pan on low flame or double boiler. When candy balls have cooled completely, dip he bonbon in the melted chocolate.
Swirl the tops with the back of a teaspoon to give a pretty effect.
Place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet or baking pan.
Chill well before serving.

Makes about 8 dozen bonbons.
