Peanut Butter Krispie Balls are a variation of Rice Krispie Treats, the classic no-bake cookies. The originals are made with crisp rice cereal, marshmallows, and melted butter.

This version includes peanut butter. It also differs slightly in its formation – this recipe is for a molded cookie rather than a bar cookie.

Shape the balls and roll them in sprinkles. FUN!

Mixing time: about 10 minutes
Molding time: 15-30 minutes
