Did you guys enjoy my recipe for No-Bake Peanut Butter Truffles? Well, today I have made them even better. I’ve turned them into Peanut Butter Crunch Balls!

To make these into Peanut Butter Crunch Balls, I simply folded 2 cups of crispy rice cereal into the mix. They make these bites incredibly crispy and chewy. A perfect combination with peanut butter and chocolate!

To coat these Peanut Butter Balls, you can use any type of chocolate you like! Milk chocolate, white, dark, semi-sweet. Pick a chocolate you enjoy eating on its own.

Enjoy! πŸ™‚

No-Bake Peanut Butter Crunch Balls

Deliciously creamy peanut butter balls loaded with crispy rice cereal, and coated in a chocolate shell!
Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Yields 40 -45 balls

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 115g, softened
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter 250g
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups icing/powdered sugar 375g
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal 50g
  • 16 oz milk, dark or white chocolate 450g, coarsely chopped

Instructions

  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy. Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and salt, and beat until smooth and combined. Add the icing sugar, and beat on low until combined. Fold in the crispy rice cereal. The mixture will be crumbly, but you should be able to roll into balls.

  2. Roll the dough mixture into 1-inch balls (about 0.5oz each), and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. You should have about 40 - 45 balls. Refrigerate until firm - about 1 hour.
  3. Add the chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Dip each peanut butter ball into the melted chocolate, and place back onto the baking tray. Allow to set in the fridge before serving.

Notes

Balls can be kept in an airtight container, layered between parchment or wax paper, in the fridge for up to 1 week. They also freeze well for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.

    I can’t be trusted around sweet containing peanut butter… especially when you throw some friggin’ Rice Krispies into the mix. These look awesome!
