This tasty recipe is being posted per a request on the boards. I got it from a fund raiser cookbook put out by the ladies who live in our retirement park. It's very easy to prepare...Takes no time at all...They go nicely on Christmas trays, or, for that fact, any time of year! Yield and prep. times are guesses on my part. I've included freeze time, approx. an hour or so, and prep. time to mix ingredients, 15 min., together. Times may differ for you depending on how quick your freezer will set up the "Golf Balls"...so you can dip them in the chocolate and paraffin mixture. Don't know whether you want to call these candy or cookies...They're made with peanut butter and Rice Krispies, and become a sweet little treat no matter what you call them.
- 3 cups Rice Krispies
- 2 cups chunky peanut butter
- 1 lb powdered sugar
- 3⁄4 cup melted margarine
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 (6 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 (6 ounce) packagesweet chocolate chips
- 3 ounces paraffin wax
- Mix first five ingredients together.
- Form into balls and freeze.
- Melt chocolate chips and paraffin wax together.
- Dip balls in chocolate mixture while balls are still frozen.
- You can also use 1 lb.
- of white almond bark, melted, with food coloring of your choice, ie.
- ,red, green, blue, etc.
- ,instead of the chocolate, adding as many drops as desired.
- Or, for vanilla affect, use 1 lb.
- of white almond bark, without food coloring.
I made these for a golf buff's retirement party. They were delicious. I displayed on a platter covered with green tinted coconut and stuck a homemade golf flag in the middle.
I was going to post this recipe and saw you had already done so. Mine is the same as Chef #57042's. The cookbook is called "Capitol Cookies" and posts a cookie recipe from each state. This one is from California. I can't wait to try both variations, thanks for posting!
I have not tried this recipe. My copy of this recipe is slightly different. It calls for 2 cups Rice Krispies, 2 cup creamy peanut butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup soft butter, 6oz butterscotch chips and 1/2 bar paraffin. No vanilla extract is listed. The rest is the same. These sound yummy! Thanks for posting. Christine (internetnut)
