Peanut Butter Balls – YUMMY!

I got this recipe from one of the gals I worked with years ago when I was nursing in British Columbia.

I make it every year {would make it more, but my girlish figure would explode}

In saying that, this is such a great dessert dish … way easy to make!!!

Or just to have to bring out for guests when they pop over for a visit!

1 cup   Icing/Powdered Sugar
2 tsp  Butter
1 tsp   Vanilla
1 cup   Rice Krispies
1 bag   Coconut {you may not use it all}

Cream first 4 ingredients well and add Rice Krispies
