These Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Balls feature a smooth and creamy peanut butter filling inside of a chocolate coating. Incredibly easy to make with just five simple ingredients!
Is there any better combination than peanut butter and chocolate? From these classic no-bake cookies to these no-bake chocolate peanut butter bars and these chocolate peanut butter cupcakes, I think it’s pretty obvious how much I love the combination of the two. So today I wanted to share one of my favorite peanut butter and chocolate desserts – this homemade peanut butter ball recipe.
These peanut butter balls are a wonderful recipe to make year-round because they’re completely no-bake, which means you don’t have to worry about turning your oven on. You only need five ingredients to make them and that’s including a little bit of vanilla extract and salt.
This recipe will make about 3 dozen peanut butter balls, but you can easily cut it in half to make less. These will also freeze well for several months so they’re a great recipe that you can prep ahead of time!
½ cup peanut butter
3 tbsps soft butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Rice Krispies
½ cup chopped pecans
1 cup shredded coconut
Mix together,refrigerate for a half hour or longer and then form into balls. Return to fridge and let chill at least an hour.
Melt the following together in a double –boiler:
1 package chocolate chips,
1 square sweet chocolate
Keep on low so that chocolate remains soft.
Drop balls into chocolate mixture one at a time using a fork to roll them so that the chocolate will cover. Let set on parchment paper in fridge. They freeze well
