How to Make Peanut Butter Balls

Three Methods:

Peanut butter balls are a good treat for any occasion, any day of the week, any time of day and for anyone (who likes peanut butter, anyway). Once you make these bad boys, you'll wonder if you ever did because they vanished so quickly. Follow the steps below to get balling!


Creamy Peanut Butter Balls

  • 2 cups (400 g) peanut butter
  • 2 cups (400 g) honey
  • 2 1/6 (435 g) cups powdered milk
  • 2 cups (400 g) crushed cornflakes, finely chopped walnuts/pecans, or powdered sugar

Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls

  • 1 cup (200 g) crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) margarine or butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200 g) powdered sugar
  • 2 cups (400 g) Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal

Chocolate Covering

  • 2 cups (400 g) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsps (30 g) vegetable shortening


Creamy Peanut Butter Balls

  1. Mix peanut butter, honey, and milk together in a large bowl to form a very thick mixture.This recipe yields about 50 peanut butter balls -- if you want more or less, adjust accordingly.
  2. Roll mixture in small balls about the size of a large walnut.Who are we kidding? Make 'em as big as you want.
  3. Roll the ball in either the crushed cornflakes, finely chopped nuts, or powdered sugar.If you're new to the glory that is the peanut butter ball, you may want to try all three and experiment with different levels of covering. You may think you want to go light on the powdered sugar when smothering it seals in the peanut butter-y taste.
  4. Place on waxed paper and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.They'll be better when they're colder. Meaning they're great when they're room temperature, but the party really gets started when they're chilled.
  5. Enjoy!

Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls

  1. In large electric mixer bowl, beat peanut butter, margarine and sugar on medium speed until thoroughly combined.If you don't have an electric mixer, you'll be fine. Stir away and pawn off the stuff halfway through to a friend when your arm gets tired.
    • If you're using butter, it's soft, right? It has to be to combine well (and save you some serious grunt work).
  2. Add the rice krispies cereal, mixing thoroughly.It may be easiest to do this a bit at a time, so portion it out. Don't worry about the cereal collapsing or breaking into teeny bits from mixing -- it'll all taste the same in the end. Wonderful, that is.
    • Generic brands work just as well. Any puffed rice crisp will warrant similar results.
  3. Shape into balls.Place each ball in a cupcake liner -- mini or regular-sized, depending on your preference. You'll have around 30-50 balls, depending on how large you make them.
    • At this point, you have the option of covering them in powdered sugar, chocolate, or whatever addition you see fit.
  4. Refrigerate until firm.As stated previously, they're better when chilled. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They keep for a while, but they'll only last a few days if your family knows about them!

Chocolate Covering

  1. In a saucepan, melt the chocolate and shortening over low heat.Be sure to stir constantly to prevent the bottom from scorching. Once the mixture is completely melted and combined, move to a wide-brimmed bowl.
  2. Drizzle 1 teaspoon (5 g) of the melted chocolate over each peanut butter ball.Or throw the ball into the bowl and roll around with a fork (so long as you avoid using your fingers), if you'd like 'em even more chocolate-y. Let drip over the bowl and place on wax paper or in a cupcake liner.
  3. Refrigerate.The chocolate needs to set and the peanut butter becomes more solid (and delicious) when cold.
  4. Finished.
