Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls are made with creamy peanut butter and covered with a dark chocolate shell. They're an easy, no-bake peanut butter delight!


  • 16 oz. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 16 oz. powdered sugar
  • 24 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil (ad)
  • baking cocoa for dusting (optional)


  1. Blend peanut butter and softened butter with a mixer until creamy (about 2 minutes on medium).
  2. Add powdered sugar gradually and mix well. 
  3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Dough should not be sticky. If it is, add more powdered sugar.
  4. Place on a parchment paper lined sheet pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil (ad) in microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes. Stop microwave every 30 seconds and stir until creamy.
  6. Place each ball of dough on a fork and dip into smooth chocolate one at a time. Transfer to a lined sheet pan. 
  7. Refrigerate chocolate peanut butter balls until chocolate shell hardens.
  8. Dust candy with baking cocoa if desired. 
  9. Transfer to a package for gift giving or enjoy! 


Chocolate covered peanut balls should be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Candy can last up to 1 week in the refrigerator (if you're lucky to have any left).
