Crunchy peanut butter and crispy cereal inside a chocolate shell make these Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls one scrumptious holiday favorite we crave year ’round!


  • 2 cups crunchy peanut butter (no-stir)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 2 cups semi‐sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons canola or coconut oil


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and cereal until well combined.
  2. Form mixture into 1-inch balls with your hands. It will be sticky at first, but just keep rolling the mixture between the palm of your hands until it holds together in a ball shape. Coat your hands with non-stick cooking spray, if necessary. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips with 2 teaspoons oil for 60 seconds in the microwave and then stir continuously until completely melted and smooth. Microwave an additional 30 seconds, if necessary.
  4. Drop peanut butter balls, one at a time, into the melted chocolate. Using a fork, roll the peanut butter ball to coat completely in the chocolate and gently lift to let excess chocolate drip back into the bowl. Transfer back to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining peanut butter balls until they are all coated.
  5. Drizzle each coated peanut butter ball with some of the remaining melted chocolate for a decorative touch.
  6. Let coated peanut butter balls set until coating is completely dry.
  7. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator or freezer.
