Crunchy No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

No bake chocolate peanut butter balls were the perfect answer to my dilemma.

I was supposed to bring a homemade dessert to a birthday party once on a very small notice. I searched high and low for a quick and simple cookie recipe.

I finally came across two recipes for these luscious no bake cookies, but did not quite like either one of them. Naturally, I chose to place together my own recipe by selectively combining the best ingredients from both. Here they are:

2 cups of unfrosted corn flakes

2/3 cup of confectioners’ sugar

¼ cup or ½ stick of unsalted butter, softened

2/3 cup of either smooth or chunky peanut butter

5 oz of semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

1 tsp of vegetable oil

1 cup of unsalted and roasted peanuts, finely chopped

1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper

2. Crumble corn flakes into smaller pieces

3. Combine crumbled corn flakes, confectioners’ sugar, softened butter, and peanut butter using either a wooden spoon or your hands

4. Shape peanut butter mix into approximately 1-inch balls and place them on prepared cookie sheet

5. Spread about ¼ cup of chopped peanuts in a flat dish

6. Bring some water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat

7. Combine semisweet chocolate and vegetable oil in a heat proof bowl, and position it over this saucepan. Make sure that bottom of bowl does not touch the water

Stir constantly to slowly melt the chocolate

8. Remove chocolate from heat, but keep bowl over pot of water

Using two forks, dip one ball at a time in the melted chocolate

9. Transfer chocolate coated peanut butter balls to the dish containing chopped peanuts, and coat it evenly

Place it back on parchment-lined sheet. Repeat with the remaining cookies, adding more chopped peanuts as needed

If chocolate starts to thicken, repeat the heating procedure.

You can either air dry these peanut butter balls or refrigerate them. To easily make another variety, do not coat them with chopped peanuts.

This recipe yields about fifteen 1-inch crunchy chocolate peanut butter balls.
