Peanut Butter Balls

Here's the recipe for everyone to make for their honeys for Valentine's Day! Sorry, it's taken me so long to post. I've been having Internet issues and was out of town yesterday (I got to shop in the city!!!) After a 40 minute phone call, I got my Internet issues resolved! Yea!

Peanut Butter Balls


2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 stick of butter, softened
1 16 oz package of powdered sugar
2 1/2 - 3 cups Rice Krispie cereal (use as much depending on how crispy you want them)
approximately one bag of chocolate chips
Shortening (optional)


Mix peanut butter and butter until smooth. Gradually add in powdered sugar. Once it is light and fluffy, pour in cereal and mix well.

Roll into balls using your hands and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I used my cookie scoop and it made this go much quicker! If you choose, you can stick sucker sticks in. I normally don't mess with this step. Chill for 30 minutes.

Extra Step for using sucker sticks! Melt chocolate however you choose, stirring frequently. I add a tablespoon or so of shortening to my chocolate. Remove each sucker stick and dip the tip in chocolate and the reinsert it into the ball. Chill again to harden the chocolate. This helps keep the balls from falling off the stick.

Melt chocolate (or remelt if you did the above step). I add a tablespoon or so of shortening to my chocolate. Dip the balls into the chocolate. Skewers and toothpicks can be helpful for this step. Place balls back on lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with goodies and chill until hardened. I store this in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Your Valentine will love you FOREVER if you make these!!!!!!!!!


  1. Yum, yum, yum, my hubby (and kiddos) will LOVE these. Thanks

  2. They look delicious. Just looking at them added 10 lbs.

    I will make these and eat them too!
    Have a great day.

  3. These sound so delish and eash to make. I can't wait to try them. I think I actually might make them to give away in Easter baskets....who doesn't like peanut butter!?

  4. These look so good. I make some like that for Christmas but mine don't have the rice crispys in them. I think that would be yummy and I am going to try them this way! Thanks for the recipe!


I love hearing from you beautiful readers! Leave some love!
