Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls of Yumminess

by Sandy Pollock

I saw this recipe back around Easter and have wanted to try it ever since. Thank you Vanilla Sugar Blog!! Since it’s not Easter, and I couldn’t really make them look like eggs, we are just going to call them balls. They are sinful, crunchy, sweet and rich. You will eat one, then you will feel full and say you don’t want another one, but you will be back for another. I guarantee it. Here’s how it went down!


Mix the peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, salt, and panko crumbs together in a large bowl.

Mix well.

Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

Take out of the fridge. (It will look just like it did when it went in. Just more firm.)

Scoop out.

Roll into a ball shape or whatever shape you want. Go crazy. You could make ovals, or spheres, or circles, or logs.

The world is your oyster!

They are good to eat right now, but chocolate will make’em even more teriffical!

Melt chocolate in a double boiler.

A bowl of melted chocolate. I’m gonna need a moment.

Ok, I’m back. Dunk’em in the chocolate and coat well.

Back in the fridge until their yumminess has solidified.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls of Yumminess

12 ounces high quality chocolate

1½ cups crunchy peanut butter

2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

½ cup plain panko crumbs

Pinch of sea salt

Mix the peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, panko, and salt together in a large bowl.  Check to make sure it is sweet enough. If you want to make it sweeter;  just add a little more powdered sugar and mix it in well.

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and put that bad boy in the fridge for at a few hours at the very minimum.

Time to roll these boys into balls. We are getting much closer to eating them. Once rolled; put them on a tray covered with parchment paper and chill again.

Get your chocolate melted while the peanut butter balls are chilling in the fridge.

In a double boiler, carefully melt the chocolate (set a heat proof bowl on top of a saucepan with an inch of boiling water – don’t let the bowl touch the water).

You can start dipping when the chocolate is melted. Drop a couple of the peanut butter balls in the melted chocolate and coat well. Place the coated peanut butter balls on your prepared tray. When done place tray in the fridge and let firm up.

Eat! Do it now.  SO GOOD!

  4. I’m making these for my kids to give their friends. They are so yummy! I found a company online, Box and Wrap that has some really cute Easter cello bags. This will make a really nice treat to give!

  5. Putting the peanut butter balls into the chocolate was a real problem. I melted the chocolate in the microwave…maybe I shouldn’t have done that but seemed easy. Is there an easy way to put the peanut butter balls into the chocolate and to get them OUT!

    • Howdy Lucy! I just drop the peanut butter ball into the chocolate and used a fork to get them out. The chocolate should be melted enough so that it will cover the tiny fork holes when it is laid out to set. Hope this helps!! I love these things.
