How to Make No Bake Peanut Butter Balls

No bake recipes are great because they can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge or freezer for later. This makes meal prepping a breeze, and it’s cost efficient. Here’s my recipe for the No Bake Peanut Butter Balls:

  • Combine the dry ingredients. Add the peanut butter, crushed graham crackers, sugar and butter to a bowl and mix to combine.
  • Place the balls on the cookie sheet. Divide the mixture into 36 balls. Place the balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Freeze. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate. Add the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second intervals stirring between each interval, until the chocolate has melted.
  • Dip the balls in the melted chocolate. Remove the balls from the freezer. Dip each ball into melted chocolate.
  • Add sprinkles. Sprinkle with holiday sprinkles.
  • Refrigerate. Refrigerate for a minimum of one hour before serving.
