Peanut Butter Balls

Since my craft of the day was from grandma, I guess the recipe will be too.
For years my grandparents made hundreds of these balls for gifts at Christmas. Each family would get a container and they always made one for the bank where I worked. I now make them. Family gets them at my house and I put them on trays that we give away.

Peanut Butter Balls

Mix together and form into balls.
1 pound powered sugar
2 cups peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
1 stick oleo
3 cups Rice Krispies (when I tried a cheaper brand, we did not think they were as good)

Melt in double boiler; 8-9 oz Hershey bar, 3/4 bar paraffin, and 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate.
Dip balls in chocolate mixture. Let dry on waxed paper.

At times we will chill the balls.
