This is one treat we have to make every year for Christmas.  It is my husband's favorite (it's probably all the peanut butter).  We can not make it through Christmas without making at least one batch of these.  It usually ends up being 3 batches--like this year--because it is one of our staples in our goody basket to friends and neighbors.  
This is also something I had as a child every year.  My mom just found the original recipe she cut out of the newspaper about 25 years ago.  Can you believe it? Try it and let me know what you think.  Maybe your neighbors will love it as much as my neighbors!

1 c. sugar
1 c. karo syrup
2 c. crunchy peanut butter
6 c. Rice Krispies
7 cubes almond bark

* In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, mix sugar and karo syrup.  Stirring constantly, bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth.  Put rice krispies in large bowl and pour peanut butter mixture over it.  Stir to coat well.  Using small scoop (or roll into 1 inch balls, be careful it will be hot) place on wax paper.  Let cool.

* In medium bowl, melt almond bark.  Stir until smooth.  After balls are cool, dip bottom into almond bark and set back down on wax paper.  Let cool.  Store in tightly covered container. Enjoy!
