Peanut Butter Ball Pops!

I really enjoyed making the cake pops and thought this would be a fun project to try as well! Take your favorite peanut butter ball recipe, dip it into some melted chocolate, and add your toppings! I used crunchy peanut butter and instead of rice cereal I used sweetened shredded coconut. For the chocolate, I melted pure Belgian milk chocolate wafers. These are a real sweet tasting treat!

Peanut Butter Balls


  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Melt peanut butter and butter in saucepan, over low heat. In large bowl, mix crispy rice cereal and confectioners' sugar well. Pour melted peanut butter and butter over cereal and sugar and blend together thoroughly.
  2. Form into 1 inch or smaller balls, spread on cookie sheets, chill till firm in refrigerator (over night is okay).
  3. Melt chocolate in double boiler and keep melted while working with balls. A teaspoon is best to use in dipping the balls in chocolate. Dip good and place on cookie sheet. As you dip them place them back on cookie sheet and keep chilled till firm.

What a great idea! I bet rice krispies would taste good on a stick too!
