Can I Use Natural Peanut Butter?

You can swap out the processed peanut butter for natural, but there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Texture. The texture of natural peanut butter is a bit on the runny side. Keep your natural peanut butter chilled as long as possible before adding it to your batter, and be sure to stir it really well before measuring. Or use a no-stir natural creamy peanut butter, like I do for most of my baking recipes!
  • Salt. Secondly, if your natural peanut butter is unsalted, you might need to adjust the amount of salt in your baking.
  • Sweetness. It’s certainly unsweetened, so the end product may not be as sweet as you expect, either. You may want to adjust the amount of sugar according to your tastes. 

How to Make Nutter Butter Balls

  • Finely crush the Nutter Butter cookies in a food processor or crush them in a sturdy plastic bag. You should have about 4 cups of crushed cookies. Reserve 2 tablespoons for garnishing.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the remaining crushed cookies, cream cheese and peanut butter. Beat together until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into 1 tablespoon size balls and place on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour or place in the freezer for 15 minutes to flash freeze them.

  • Melt the candy coating according to package directions. 
  • Using a fork, dip each chilled nutter butter ball into the candy coating until it is completely coated.
  • Place back on the parchment lined sheet pan.
  • Immediately sprinkle with some of the reserved crushed cookies. Let set completely.
