Crispy Peanut Butter Balls

  • Author: Amber
  • Yield: 30 Peanut Butter Balls 1x


Crispy Peanut Butter Balls are an easy no-bake dessert made with crunchy peanut butter, rice cereal, butter, confectioners sugar and chocolate.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 2 cups crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 10 ounces chocolate melting wafers
  • 4 teaspoons shortening
  • sprinkles


  1. Add softened butter and peanut butter into a microwave safe bowl. Cook in microwave for 1 minute and stir well. 
  2. Slowly add in confectioners sugar mixing the ingredients into a dough. Use a spatula or even a your hands to thoroughly mix. 
  3. Add crispy rice cereal. Stir well. 
  4. Roll 1 inch balls and place onto a parchment covered cookie sheet. It helps to use press the ingredients together into a ball with your hands.
  5. Place peanut butter balls into freezer for 15 minutes. 
  6. Place the chocolate wafers and shortening into a microwave safe bowl. Cook in 30 second increments, stirring between, until chocolate is fully melted. 
  7. Dip each peanut butter ball into melted chocolate and place back onto parchment paper. I like to use a toothpick to dip but a fork also works well or whichever method you prefer. Add sprinkles immediately. 
  8. Serve when chocolate has hardened.
