How to make peanut butter balls with graham crackers

Step 1: Add the peanut butter and melted butter to the kitchen-aid mixer (or use a hand mixer) and mix to combine.

Step 2: Add the graham crackers to a food processor and process into crumbs.

Step 3: Add the graham cracker crumbs and salt to the peanut butter mixture until combined.

Step 4: Add the powdered sugar. Finish mixing with a rubber spatula until the peanut butter ball batter is completely combined.

Step 5: Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Drop the peanut butter balls onto the baking sheet using a mini cookie scoop, then roll with your hands. You should get around 20 peanut butter balls.

How do you keep peanut butter balls from sticking?

Step 6: Chill the peanut butter balls for one hour in the fridge. This step will help the batter firm up enough to where it is not sticky and falling apart when you dip them in chocolate.

Step 7: Once your peanut butter balls have chilled, melt the semi sweet chocolate chips. Dip the peanut butter graham cracker balls into the melted chocolate and place back onto the baking sheet. Chill until firm.

What kind of peanut butter do I use for peanut butter balls?

Always use the no stir peanut butter when making peanut butter balls. All natural peanut butter is oilier and a different texture. As far as crunchy versus creamy, either no stir kind would be delicious!

  1. Very good! I used dark roasted peanut butter because that is what I had. I used my orange scoop which made 42 peanut butter balls.

    1. I would store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. They will keep longer in the freezer.
