These no-bake peanut butter balls have just five ingredients. They make the perfect pick-me-up snack and pack a sweet punch that will “cure” any sweet tooth. You can make these one-bite treats ahead of time and simply store them in the fridge until they’re ready to serve. We tested these with a variety of peanut butters and found that if you’re using a no added salt peanut butter, you might want to slightly up the salt in the recipe.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together 1/2 cup of the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt in a medium bowl until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar and stir until fully incorporated. Scoop out 18 balls (about 1 tablespoon each) onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.

Step 2

Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH until melted and smooth, about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring in 30-second intervals. Dip chilled balls, one at a time, into chocolate, turning to coat. Lift out with a fork and let excess drip off. Place back onto parchment. Repeat with remaining balls. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.

Step 3

Microwave remaining 2 tablespoons peanut butter until loosened, about 20 seconds on HIGH. Drizzle balls evenly with peanut butter. Chill until set, about 5 minutes. Freeze or refrigerate in an airtight container.
