Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls

Enjoy this easy recipe for peanut butter chocolate balls.

Kids always have fun dipping the peanut butter balls in chocolate. Just give them a fork and put the chocolate in a bowl and they can have an exciting afternoon making these PB balls.

It would be great for them to make these treats on a day when they can’t play outside.

My granddaughters had a lot of fun making PB balls, I know your kids will too. So the next rainy day, let them try something creative.


You will need a large mixing bowl, a one cup plus a 1/4 cup measuring cup, a tablespoon, 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 onto the cookie sheet and set aside.

Gather Your Ingredients:

Make sure you have everything before you begin.


  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. shortening
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 cups icing sugar


  • 3 1/2 squares Bakers' semisweet chocolate
  • 1 tbsp. paraffin wax

Creating Your Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls Masterpiece:

  1. Cream together butter, shortening, peanut butter, and icing sugar until well blended and roll into one inch balls using the palm of your hands. If the dough sticks to your hands put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes and then try rolling it in your hands again.
  2. Chill the balls for about an hour until firm enough to dip in chocolate mixture.
  3. Melt semisweet chocolate and paraffin wax in a double boiler or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water until they are completely melted.
  4. Roll the balls in the melted chocolate, lifting them out with a slotted spoon or fork and set them on the waxed paper lined cookie sheet.
  5. Place in fridge until chocolate coating is hard.

Placed in an air tight container, they should last about 2 weeks in the fridge or about a month in the freezer.
