“This recipe goes back a long time, it is easy to make and one of my son's favorites! Use only smooth peanut butter or the balls will not hold together, these are even great without the chocolate coating, plan ahead the peanut butter balls need to chill for a few hours before coating in chocolate, cooking time is chilling time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl combine the peanut butter with confectioners sugar and graham crumbs until well combined.
  2. Add in the melted butter and mix thoroughly until combined (I find that using my hands for mixing works better than a spoon, if the mixture is not holding together add in a little more melted butter).
  3. Using hands shape into small balls (about 1-inch).
  4. Place the balls on a plate and refrigerate until completely cold (about 2 hours).
  5. After the balls have chilled I like to re-roll them again to make a perfect shaped ball but that is optional.
  6. In the microwave melt the chocolate with the shortening until smooth, removing once and stirring.
  7. Dip the COLD balls into the chocolate mixture to coat.
  8. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper to set.
