Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls only require a few ingredients and they are so easy to whip up. Oh, and they’re super addicting….like chips…I bet, you can’t eat just one.
I have long wondered whether to share this with you because I do not want to bother you a lot about my private life.
But, as people say, something nice like this shouldn’t be a secret. This summer is the most beautiful summer of my life. The most beautiful thing happened … we are going to become parents of a baby. I decided to write and share with you my thoughts and feelings during my pregnancy, as a memento of this wonderful condition. I would like my child to read all this one day and to know that I loved him from the first day in my stomach and that I love him the most in the whole world.
In the evening of October 13 I felt the movements of our little angel for the first time. I thought it was because of “hot pizza,” but I was wrong. Now I’m in my week 19 and it is just the time for that sweet tickling.
OK, as I promised I won’t bother you much, and quickly moving to the main point – Today’s sweet treat.
If you have had a problem with time lately, and if you don’t have much time as I don’t, I recommend you this quick and easy sweet recipe we all worship: Chocolate Peanut butter balls.
These are super yummy, bet you can’t just eat one !
- 2 cups crushed graham crackers
- 16 oz powdered sugar
- 2 sticks melted butter
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating
- Mix the graham crackers, peanut butter and melted butter together in a large bowl.
- After they are well mixed together, add in the powdered sugar, a little at a time.
- You have enough powered sugar when the mixture holds together well.
- Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or until firm up.
- Shape the dough into 1-inch balls, place the formed balls on a wax paper lined cookie tray and chill in the refrigerator again, for about 15 - 20 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate chips, or chocolate candy coating according to the package directions.
- Dip the peanut butter balls one at a time into the melted chocolate.
- Let the excess chocolate drip off, as the chocolate will pool a little when you set it down.
- Place the dipped peanut butter chocolate ball onto wax paper and let it harden.
- When all the balls have been dipped in the chocolate, place the balls in the fridge to let the chocolate set. It should take an hour or two.
- Best to store these in the freezer as well.
- If you store these in the fridge, they will become slightly soft.
- * I've never had a problem with storing them at room temperature - probably because they don't last long enough!

The recipe for peanut butter balls that uses rice krispies not graham crackers is so much better gives the peanut butter balls a creamier texture with a crunch.
How much rice krispies do you add for this recipe?
Hi Matt,this recipe does not call for rice krispies!
My mum uses rice crispies too, and it makes em crunchy like krakel candy bars. And if you melt a little bakers wax in with the chocolate, they set up easier and no longer “require” refrigeration.
What size is a stick of butter?
Hi Amber,1 stick of butter is 1/2 cup or 113 gr.

mY DO THESE LOOK SO GOOD/ I AM GOING TO TRY THEM. ARE THEY OK FOR DIABETIC ?
Uh, probably not good for a diabetic, considering the graham crackers, chocolate, powdered sugar, etc. My problem also.

I am loving the Peanut Ball recipe!! Thanks for sharing! I also LOVE to Cook & Bake….we have that in common. LOL Congratulations on your son’s birth!!
How much is 2 sticks of butter
Hi Lorie,it’s mean 8 ounce – oz butter.Happy baking!
I make them with the rice krispies also.
in the recipe for a stick of butter can I use margarine and how much if I mesure with a metric mesuring cup.
I’m diabetic. What’s the calorie content?
Just wanted to let you know, if you use 1 or 2 plastic forks to put the balls in the chocolate and take them out it might be a bit easier. The Chocolate won’t pool so much on the bottom. And you can use the forks to push the ball off of the other,or if you have a tooth-pick you could use that also to push the ball off.
I never leave comments…BUT, I wanted to say thank you for this recipe. My mother used to make these and only the last 20 years I have tried to find it. My mother never could remember her measurements..but this is it!! Excellent recipe! I’ve noticed a lot of comments regarding using Rice Krispies, which to me sounds, YUCK! My mother did divide her peanut butter up between Extra Crunchy and Smooth to give it more crunch. Thanks again, for a great recipe!
