Good morning, friends! Can you believe Christmas is almost here? Wow, the month sure has flown by. Today, I am sharing one of my favorite candy recipes…Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls. I adore anything with peanut butter in it. This candy is perfect for serving at a party, and it makes the perfect gift for friends, family, and neighbors.

2 Cups of Good Quality Smooth Peanut Butter ( I used Jiff for my candy.)

3/4 Cup of Softened Butter

3 Cups of Rice Crispy Cereal

16 Ounce Box of Powdered Sugar

1 Pound of Chocolate Almond Bark


  1.  Mix the 2 cups of smooth peanut butter and 3/4 cup of the softened butter together until smooth.
  2. Crush the three cups of Rice Crispy Cereal, and add to the mixture.
  3. Add the box of powdered sugar to the mix.
  4. Stir all the ingredients together until well mixed.
  5. Refrigerate the mixture for at least two hours.  This will be helpful in forming the balls.
  6. After the mixture has been refrigerated for at least two hours, it is ready to dip into the chocolate.
  7. Roll the mixture into one inch balls, and dip into the melted chocolate almond bark.*You may have a better technique for dipping the candy, but I used two spoons. You could also use toothpicks or a skewer.*
  8. Place the dipped balls onto wax paper or foil and allow to cool. After cooling store in an air tight container.

These candies make the perfect gifts. I found these sweet treat boxes at Big Lots. I simply added my candy to the box and tied it up with a pretty ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that you have a happy and blessed day! Merry Christmas!!!


  1. Yum yum! I would love these. I love PB!

  2. Shannon, these look delicious. My Mother always made chocolate covered peanut butter balls, but her recipe didn’t have Rice Krispies! Wishing you a joy-filled Monday!

  3. I love peanut butter balls! I have never tried them with the cereal in them but definitely want to!


    • Trisha, the cereal adds a nice little crunch. If you like peanut butter balls, I bet that you would love these. I love anything with peanut butter! I am so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas!!!

  4. Yum! I love these. Unfortunately my hubby doesn’t. He likes peanut butter on its own and he likes chocolate on its own but not together. I don’t get that but anyway that is how things are here in my home. Thankfully, he likes most everything else. Thanks for sharing your recipe and have a lovely joy filled week leading up to Christmas Day.

    Christmas blessings,

    • Hi Sandi! I’m so happy that you stopped by! I hope that all is well with you and that you are feeling better! I hope that you have a week filled with lots of joy and happiness! Merry Christmas!!!

  5. These are wonderful. My recipe is a little different, no rice krispies. You have created a beautiful vignette for your chocolate covered peanut butter balls. Many blessings to you sweet Shannon.

  6. Sounds easy enough and also sounds delicious!

  7. Nothing like the flavors of chocolate and peanut butter…looks amazing Shannon!
    Merry, Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!

  8. These sound really good. I love recipes with peanut butter in them. I can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing at Your Inspired Design Link Party. Have a very Merry Christmas!

  9. Such a fabulous recipe! I make these often with or without the Rice Krispies. In Ohio they are called Buckeyes because they look just like Buckeyes.

    I am loving your dishes!! Are this Pioneer Women’s dishes?
