1 cup of creamy peanut butter
1 cup of softened, real butter
1 full pound of confectioner's sugar
2 1/2 cups rice cereal finely crushed
3/4 cup finely ground, unsalted peanuts
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon butter
Blend peanut butter, butter and sugar together until a paste forms. Add cereal and nuts. Roll into small balls; set on wax paper or a cookie sheet. When dough balls are made, melt butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler. Blend until smooth. Carefully dip each cookie into the chocolate mix, leaving a part of the cookie uncovered. Cool on a plate or cookie sheet.
