Peanut Butter Balls

While making these Peanut Butter Balls memories of being in high school and working in the daycare came to me. Every Friday we would make the little ones Chex Muddy Buddy Mix. It was a treat I looked forward to I'm sure more than the kids did.

The ingredients of these Peanut Butter Balls are what makes up the Chex Muddy Buddy Mix minus the Chex cereal. Three simple ingredients come together quickly to create balls of peanutty chocolatey goodness. Melt in your mouth.

This recipe comes from The Tasty Cheapskate. I am a FOLLOWER and was giddy one morning after reading the post for these Peanut Butter Balls and realizing that I have everything on hand to give these a try. Thank you for sharing such a delicious dessert recipe.

Makes 20 Balls

Stars of the Show:
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2/3 -1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3-6 tbsp chocolate chips
And Action:

Put peanut butter and chocolate chips into a bowl and mix. Add the podered sugar. Start with the smaller amount and continue adding more as needed to get it to a consistency you consider firm enough. Roll into balls. I used a tablespoon to scoop each portion. Pop into mouth.

You can't get much easier then that, or with so few ingredients. They look very good :)

Pretend Chef said...

Rachel - So simple to make. They are perfect portion size for a nice indulgence without overdoing it since they taste rich.

Peggy said...

Sandra said...

Mmmmmm...these sound so easy and delicious! My neighbor makes something similar except with the addition of graham cracker crumbs. I think I like these even better :)

Pretend Chef said...

Peggy - I thought I'd not be able to have just one but that wasn't the case. They taste really rich for me so one is the perfect portion. Then again, I don't have much of a sweet tooth.

Sandra - Easy indeed.

Gloria - Thank you!

Dzoli - Peanut allergies are a pain to deal with but I understand why they do it. I know when my son goes to school I won't be able to send him with any nut products. Nuts are a favorite snack of his.

Lizzy - The graham crackers sound great with this combo also.
