Crispy Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

These are a great snack, with a good serving of protein, no added sugar, and lightly sweetened with honey.
You can also make them in minutes, as they're no-bake!
(My gluten-free friends, this might even be something you could use!)

1 cup natural crunchy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
2 cups crisp rice cereal (like rice crispies)
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Separate 2T of cocoa and sprinkle across a small plate.

Mix honey, peanut butter, and remaining cocoa.
Gently stir in crisp rice.
Roll into balls, then in the cocoa on the plate.
Place on tray or cookie sheet.

Place chocolate chips in small sandwich bag and microwave for 10 seconds at a time until all are melted.
 Drizzle over truffles.
Chill, if you like, to set the chocolate.
Makes about 3 dozen.
*Note: These are NOT a super sweet treat. They are mildly sweet, so you may wish to add more sugar or even honey.

These are beautiful! I can make these gluten free if I purchased gluten free rice Krispy cereal! I love that I can do that! My kids will love these.

Oh good! I was hoping you could. They are not really sweet (for Kemmie's sake) so you may want to increase the sugar by 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup to make them more like a candy. :)
