Bittersweet Peanut Butter Krispie Surprise Balls

Bittersweet Peanut Butter Krispie Surprise Balls (adapted from Nestle)

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
pinch salt
12 ounces (about 2 cups) chopped bittersweet chocolate
7 ounces marshmallow fluff
6 cups Rice Krispies
24 dark chocolate Reese's miniatures
3 ounces (about 1/2 cup) butterscotch chips

In a large saucepan, add butter and salt - heat over low until melted. Add chocolate and fluff - stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.

Remove from the heat and stir in Rice Krispies until well combined. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of 24 muffin cups placed inside two twelve-cup muffin tins. Place a Reese's candy on to the center of each muffin cup. Scoop another heaping tablespoon of the cereal mixture and place it over the Reese's candy, pressing to adhere.

In a microwave-safe bowl, add butterscotch chips - heat on medium power, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over the tops of the cereal balls and refrigerate briefly to set the top.

Makes 24 treats.
