Krispie Peanut Butter Balls

Like Peanut Butter Cups? Then you will love this crunchy variation!!

If you like Peanut Butter Cups, you are sure to like these Krispie Peanut Butter Balls as well. Same awesome taste, but with an added crunch and a bit of the tropics with the Coconut.

These are a great after school snack, or pop one or three into the kids’ lunch boxes for a special treat. I made two more batches since the first lot had disappeared so quickly !

With the second 2 batches, I made one as per the recipe for us, and one batch for my doggies, but with only a touch of Icing Sugar added and no final roll in the Shredded Coconut. They thought it was Christmas all over again !

Nahla is such a clever Basset, she fetches Roy from wherever he is, takes him straight to where I keep the container and sits in front of the counter. And Roy is a softie with the dogs, I never keep a lot of treats around for them, because he will keep on treating them as he just can not say no to their little begging faces.

Well, all the humans, except Dimitri, really enjoy these Krispie Peanut Butter Balls and it is definitely already a favorite treat. And so quick and easy to make, too, which is of course as usual something I prefer.

I have to mention that we are experiencing an unusual heatwave the last couple of days and I had to keep the Balls in a sealed container in the refrigerator as they started to soften quite a bit. Makes no difference to the taste or the texture, but the chilling does help.

Throw them together and serve 20 minutes later !

  1. Ohhhh these are lovely. I've used peanut butter in Rice Krispie treats before and adored it but these are even better as cute little bite size pieces. Though that does make them even more dangerously addictive 😉

  2. Awesome recipe! I love that they just use a few basic ingredients. Thank you so much for linking up the recipe at the "This Is How We Roll Thursday" link party!

  3. I love making rice krispie treats but I have never used peanut butter in them before. Awesome idea!

    Thanks for linking up to Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning.

  4. So easy! It'll be blazing hot before we know it here in Arizona … this will be a great no-bake treat to keep on hand! 🙂
