Peanut Butter Balls

 Ok this is an easy one. You just stir everything together, shape into small balls and then let them set. They're SUPER simple and HIGHLY addictive!!!  I discovered the recipe while watching Trisha Yearwood (who is quickly becoming one of my favorites!). These are a definite MUST for all of the peanut butter lovers in your life. They're also the perfect treat to munch while you're decorating the trees!! Thanx again to Kate, Kate, and Kait!

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 white corn syrup
2 cups crunchy peanut butter
4 cups rice cereal  

In a large saucepan, stir the sugar and the syrups together over medium heat. Remove from the heat and quickly add the peanut butter, continuing to stir until the mixture is fully combined. Add the rice cereal and mix well. Shape the mixture into palm-size balls with your hands. Transfer to waxed paper. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Just as with cookies, I used a cookie scoop to measure them into balls. It insures that they'll all be the same size.
Also, I think it's cute that the directions tell you how to store them in a container for up to two if they'll last that long... hehehe. That's funny.
