Peanut Butter Balls

adapted from Grandma’s Kitchen…

1/2 cup of Karo light corn syrup
2/3 cup of smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup of sugar
Pinch of salt
3 cups of Rice Krispies
(Chopped chocolate for dipping & drizzling if desired)
Add the corn syrup, sugar, peanut butter, and salt in a microwave safe bowl and stir to combine. Microwave for 45 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until the mixture just starts to boil.
Stir in the Rice Krispies. Let mixture cool briefly (1-2 minutes), but stir to make sure it does not stick together. Now you can either roll the mixture into balls, add lollipop sticks to the balls to make peanut butter ball lollipops, or you can roll out the mixture between to sheets of parchment paper and then use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
You can also drizzle with melted chocolate or dip balls into the chocolate
