How to make it

  • In double broiler melt wax and chocolate.
  • While that heats up mix together peanut butter and melted butter. Add powder sugar then the Rice Krispies. I usually end up using my hands to mix the peanut butter mixture.
  • Make balls about the size of a ping pong ball and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet.
  • Dip each ball in chocolate with a fork tap to remove excess chocolate.
  • Place back on wax paper.
  • Place in freezer for about 10-15 minutes or until the balls remove easily from the wax paper.
  • You can find the wax at the grocery store in the baking aisle by the canning stuff, It is called Gulf Wax household paraffin cooking wax for canning.
  • If you do not have a double broiler take a sauce pan fill 1/3 with water in another sauce pan add chocolate & wax place on top of pan with water, heat on stove about med. low heat.
  • I keep it on the heat while I am dipping the balls.
  • Do not cook chocolate at too high of heat it will ruin it.
  • If you have chocolate left over you can cover the pan and reuse with in 3-4 days.

    Does this recipe not include graham cracker crumbs? I wonder if I could put that and the rice krispies? You will laugh at this, but one time I made my aunt's famous "Gulf Balls" similar to this, and I used too much wax, so My family and my hubby has been teasin me for years: are you gonna make your wax balls this year? LOL

    I have been looking for this recipe. My mom used to make these a few times a year when I was a kid. I am so excited to make these for my family now! Thanks!

    I agree with the others, we love PB balls. Made them for our neighbors for New Years and they quickly disappeared. My recipe doesn't call for the cereal, but next time I just might have to try that.

    I've been making this one since the 70's - my oldest daughter's favorite holiday candy! I've never used the wax, though. They are a delicious little bite, with few ingredients!
