Chocolate covered peanut butter balls are a christmas favourite at my house! It's impossible to keep people from eating all of them!

  • 20 Oz creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Lb + 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Lbs powdered sugar
  • 3 Cups graham crackers crushed
  • 3 Cups rice cereal
  • 2 Lbs dark chocolate


Step 1

  • Melt the peanut butter and butter over medium-low heat.
  • Once melted remove from heat and immediately add powder sugar, graham crackers, and rice cereal (I prefer Rice Krispies, they tend to remain crisp much longer).
  • Mix until completely blended.

Step 2

  • Form mixture into balls (I use a small, 1 Tbsp. scoop for more uniform balls) and roll quickly in hands to firmly pack.
  • Put on parchment paper lined pans in a single layer.
  • Once all mixture is formed into balls place into freezer for a few hours to chill and set before dipping.

Step 3

  • Melt the chocolate per instructions on the package.
  • Dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate, using a fork, and tap on side of bowl to remove excess chocolate.
  • Place balls back on parchment paper to harden.

Step 4

  • Once the chocolate is hardened place candy in layers, separated with paper towels (absorbs any moisture the chocolate might let off), in an airtight container in a cool area, far away from the children - lest they eat all of them!
