Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Life has been full lately. With three boys, and running them around to practices and games, along with our own full and part-time jobs, sometimes it’s hard to find time to just sit and relax. Our weekends have been busy but so good. Lately we’ve been having friends over and while it’s so life-giving for us, it also takes a little bit of time and effort to think through menu plans. So to find a dessert or tasty treat that takes little prep is a high priority and a major win. Enter these peanut butter balls. They’re quick and easy and so yummy. It also helps that all my guys are huge peanut butter fans, and most of our friends enjoy peanut butter treats (there are some exceptions and we know who you are!).

These balls are very similar to the coconut cream eggs I made for Easter this year. But of course, with peanut butter instead of coconut. Both the coconut and peanut butter varieties can be made into either eggs or balls, depending on the time of year. 🙂 I used a medium-sized cookie scoop for these, making them a bigger-sized treat. Feel free to use a small scoop for smaller-portioned balls.

With a little sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs on top, these treats are not only tasty but cute too. You can even add a chocolate drizzle if you have leftover chocolate. How good would that look!

Instructions
  1. In a bowl attached to a stand mixer, mix together peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and confectioners' sugar until combined and creamy.
  2. Take a small or medium-sized cookie scoop and scoop out peanut butter mixture and roll into balls. Place balls on a wax paper lined plate and place in freezer for about 30 minutes or until firm.
  3. With a double boiler (or in microwave), melt chocolate chips and add in coconut oil. Stir until smooth. Dip hardened peanut butter balls into chocolate letting excess chocolate drip off, and place back on plate. Sprinkle with extra graham cracker crumbs. Place in refrigerator until chocolate has hardened. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
