A week of {no bake} Christmas party treats - Day 6 - Dainties

Welcome to Day 6 of a week of {no bake} Christmas party treats! Today we're making a treat that my mom made lots when she was a little girl. She used to type out all of her mom's recipes onto little index cards using a typewriter and they are still the same recipes she refers to today. Today's treats are crunchy little peanut butter balls called DAINTIES and they are both fun and easy to make.

dainties

You'll need the following ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 3-4 cups Rice Krispies

Day 6-1

Heat the peanut butter and corn syrup over the stove and mix thoroughly.

Day 6-2

Remove from heat and mix with the powdered sugar until thoroughly mixed. [honestly, I don't know if it matters whether or not the powdered sugar is sifted, I just followed the recipe]

Day 6-3

Once everything's mixed up it will look something like this:

Day 6-4

Now add 2 cups of Rice Krispies and mix thoroughly. [sorry this picture is so fuzzy!!]

Day 6-5

Form the peanut butter mixture into balls of approximately 1 inch diameter, then roll the balls in the remaining Rice Krispies, pressing in lightly to stick.

Day 6-6

Lay them out on a cookie sheet, pop them in the fridge to harden, and you're done!
