This time I mixed the ratio between Chex cereal and oatmeal...because I ran out of Chex! Ooops. I also used the food processor to crunch of the Chex and it was SOOOOO much easier than hand crunching.
Please tell me you all have food processors? I use mine almost every day.
Peanut Butter Choco Crunch Balls
-1C rice chex
-1/3C oats (quick or rolled)
-1/4C peanut butter
-m&m's or any kind of chocolate!
1.In a small food processor proccess about 2T of chocolate for about a minute. You want to turn your chocolate into chocolate dust for rolling. Set aside.
2. Then, process the Chex Cereal and oats for 15-20 seconds, turning it intto crunchy oat flour.
3. Add the peanut butter and honey and process for about a minute, or until it becomes doughy. (You may need to add a squirt more of honey (or even water) if it is still too dry.)
4. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out the dough and role between your palms forming a ball. Mine were still a little crumbly so I made sure my hands were moist with water when I was rolling the balls. Set balls aside.
5. Next, roll your balls into the chocolate dust and viola!
**You can melt some additional chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes and transfer into a ziplock bag to add an additional dollup of chocolate to the top like I did. Or, you can simply enjoy without the added choc.
So colorful and crunchy and delicious and chocolatey and nummy. I could go on...
I packaged these guys up for a gift. Look at this adorable little orange box...I got a pack of 10 at Target for 3 bucks! Good job Target.
I am off for a run with Carly and then a boat cruise on the St. Croix with Blake. Crowd Cut...you are my bff. Have a great Sunday!
