Krispy Peanut Butter Balls

Aspen had an additional cooking request for her visit: Krispy Peanut Butter Balls. They're simple, delicious, unphotogenic, and oh so bad for you.
1 stick of earth balance, room temperature
2 cups peanut butter
2-3 cups powdered sugar (can't remember, but this is just like the myriad 'buckeye' recipes online)
3 cups rice krispies
1 bag of vegan semi sweet chocolate chips

Mix together all ingredients except for chocolate chips. As gross as it sounds, I find it easier to mix well by using my hands. Shape into balls and refrigerate for an hour or so. Once chilled, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler (or, if you're like us and don't have one, use a pyrex bowl that sits inside a pan of water). Dip each ball into melted chocolate. We found that it was easier to accomplish this with less chocolate, so you might want to melt the chocolate chips in batches. Then refrigerate again until the chocolate hardens.

Not that bad for you! Peanut butter is kinda healthy. Hopefully, that makes up for all the chocolate....BTW, I'm passing you the Brilliante Weblog Award! Hit up my blog to pick it up. Then, if you want, display it on your blog. Then share the wealth by passing to 7 of your favorite blogs!

Oops! Sorry about that name thing. I was about half-asleep when I blogged last night and I was stuck on Teresa for some reason...perhaps because I'd just checked The Tropical Vegan's blog before blogging (and her name is Theresa)....oh well, I fixed it now!
