Easy Peanut Butter Balls

Easy Peanut Butter Balls

Easy peanut butter balls are very easy to make. With just a few ingredients you have a delicious treat for any occasion.

If the chocolate and shortening is melted in the microwave, the kids will be able to make these delicious peanut butter treats themselves.

Think of the fun they will have making these.

And if you substitute the peanut butter for an alternative, like Soy Nut Butter, or Wowbutter, the kids can take them to school and brag about how they made these fun treats by themselves.

The other kids would be very jealous and want to make them also.


You will need a large mixing bowl, a one cup plus a 1/2 cup measuring cup, a table spoon, a slotted spoon or fork, a double boiler or a medium bowl and sauce pan, wax paper, cookie sheets, and an air tight container.

Place the wax paper on the cookie sheet and set aside.

Gather Your Ingredients:

Make sure you have everything before you begin.


  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 3 cups icing sugar


  • 3 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp. shortening

Creating Your Easy Peanut Butter Balls Masterpiece:

  1. Mix peanut butter, margarine and icing sugar together in large mixing bowl, and roll into 1 inch balls. If the dough sticks to your hands place it in the fridge to firm it up and it will be easier to work with.
  2. Place the balls on the wax paper lined cookie sheet and place them in the fridge until firm, usually about an hour.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in double boiler or a bowl over a pan of simmering water, until well blended.
  4. Using a slotted spoon or a fork, roll the balls in the chocolate coating.
  5. Lift the balls out of the chocolate with the slotted spoon or fork which will allow the extra chocolate to drip off.
  6. Place them in the fridge to set.

It's best to store these treats in an air tight container in the fridge to keep the chocolate hard.
