Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls put a "snap, crackle, pop" into your peanut butter balls.

They are a fun treat to make and the kids love the cereal in them.

I made these treats for a family gathering and they were gone in no time. Everyone liked them.

Before the chocolate gets hard, you can decorate these balls with white chocolate drizzled over top, or sprinkle them with coconut, icing sugar, colored sprinkles or anything else you like.


You will need a large mixing bowl, a one cup plus a 1/2 cup measuring cup, a medium 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.

  • 4 cups crushed corn flakes
  • 1 cup puffed rice
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, melted

Creating Your Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls Masterpiece:

  1. In a large bowl, combine corn flakes, puffed rice and Rice Krispies and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, melt over medium heat, the corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter, stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture and mix quickly until well blended.
  4. Roll into balls using the palm of your hands, dip them in the melted chocolate chips and place on the wax paper lined cookie sheet
  5. Refrigerate until firm.

Store in an air tight container in the fridge to keep the balls firm and they should last a couple of weeks. In the freezer, they should last about a month.

You can always coat these peanut butter balls with different colored wafers like red or blue or get creative and melt some peanut butter wafers to coat the balls.

You can also try adding a cup of chocolate chips to the mixture if you have a chocolate and peanut butter craving.
