Miss Mickey's Peanut Butter Balls

copycat recipe from Trisha Yearwood's cooking show

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
2 cups crunchy peanut butter
4 cups rice cereal (I used chocolate rice cereal)
2-4 tbsps. soft butter

In a large pan, combine both corn syrups over medium heat.

Add the sugar to the corn syrup and stir until completely dissolved.

Immediately remove from heat.

Add the peanut butter and mix completely until well blended.

Add the rice cereal.  Use a strong wooden spoon or spatula to blend thoroughly.

It gets thick and tough to mix but it needs to be well blended.  Rub butter on the palm of yours hands a grab two tablespoons worth of the mixture into and roll into a ball.  Repeat with the rest of the batch being careful as some of it may be still hot.

Place on cookie sheet covered with wax paper.

You may devour immediately

These were for my hubby, the peanut butter lover in the family

I saw Trisha Yearwood and her husband Garth Brooks make these on her cooking show this morning and knew I had to make these for my hubby.  I'm not a fan of peanut butter, I sometimes can't stand the smell of it but every once in a blue moon, I crave it.  Today was a blue moon day.  I had one, just one and that was plenty.  Hubby loved them.

May you be enjoying your weekend and savoring every moment.
