 These old fashioned peanut butter balls are delicious crunchy bites  of everyone’s favorite pairing: peanut butter and chocolate! An  easy-to-make vegan and gluten-free snack that is as healthy as it is tasty.

 This peanut butter ball recipe takes no time at all to prepare, is  gluten-free, and if you make it with all-natural peanut butter (no sugar  added), it’s a very healthy treat.  And because I like a little extra  crunch in my peanut butter balls, I’ve added crisped rice, which makes  them taste like a peanut butter Mr. Goodbar! This recipe makes a  crunchy, creamy, and chocolaty snack!

 Step 4. Place chocolate chips in a medium-sized bowl and microwave for 30  seconds on high. Give it a good stir. Repeat and stir again. The  chocolate should be almost melted at this point. Be very  careful not to overheat the chocolate chips. Stir for several minutes to ensure chocolate is  completely melted but also not too warm. The chocolate mixture will thicken as it cools.

 Step 5. .Using a fork, dip balls into tempered chocolate. Lightly tap fork  against side of bowl to get rid of any excess chocolate. Place on  parchment-lined baking sheets until chocolate is completely set. This  usually takes several minutes. (You can also place baking sheet in the  refrigerator for 10 minutes to help set the chocolate).

 The recipe calls for brown rice cakes, but you can substitute crisped rice cereal if you prefer. If you are more of a milk chocolate fan, go ahead and use milk chocolate for this recipe!
