Well they may not be Schwetty Balls LOL but they are sooooo good! These are basically what I know as Buckeyes candies, but with rice krispies added and chunky not smooth peanut butter. I halved the recipe and used Jif "Natural" crunchy peanut butter and instead of candy melts, Ghirardelli semi-sweet baking chocolate (with a tiny bit of 70% dark chocolate added). I melted just 6 oz chocolate for the half recipe and had quite a bit leftover; I added a scoop of peanut butter to it and some oatmeal cereal and poured out onto parchment paper to harden. Also yummy! LOL Thanks for sharing!
