Peanut Butter Balls

My adorable 7th child, he rolled them and dipped them for mom!

This is my version of peanut butter balls. I made them about 30 years ago and the recipe included dates and walnuts but my kids did not care for that! I changed things and added cereal instead. They are a family favorite and my oldest son requested we make him a pyramid of peanut butter balls for his wedding!!!

Now please keep in mind, when it comes to cooking I usually go by how it looks and tastes but baking is totally measured out! Peanut butter balls are an exception in the dessert area and I just add this and that. I tried to measure this very carefully but sometimes I add a little more or less so please remember this is a bit rough.

Ingredients

2 cups peanut butter

3 cups powdered sugar

1 cup crushed up crispy rice cereal

Mix peanut butter, powdered sugar and cereal well.

Roll into balls and place on baking sheet.

Dip in chocolate and then refrigerate or freeze to set.

  10. Yes, totally adorable! And a peanut butter ball pyramid? BRILLIANT! I’d have another wedding (to Charley, of course) just to put this in the middle of the table with a bride & groom on top!

  21. Peanut butter has always been a favourite with my children – and to be coated in chocolate makes these peanut butter balls sound like heaven! Thay would go down really well at Christmas, or any other festive occasion. What a lovely picture of your son! He looks so happy with his creations! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I love that you have a big family! At first, I thought it said that your son who is helping there in the photos was the one getting married! I thought, “Am I that old? He looks 15!” Then I realized he was helping make them for your oldest son’s wedding.

    (I still suspect I’m as old as I thought I was, though.)

    You seem to have a real community going here, which is terrific! But what I loved most about this wasn’t the recipe (though it looks delicious). As a mentor myself of teens and young adults, I just love to see happy families doing things together, and smiling teens experiencing a full scope of what life is about. Looks like that is happening in your home. Good job!

  44. Lynn, your son is handsome and such a wonderful helper, too! ๐Ÿ™‚ In Ohio, we call chocolate covered peanut butter balls, “Buckeyes.” They resemble buckeye “nuts” when you leave a small semi-circle of peanut butter exposed. ๐Ÿ™‚
