Crispy Peanut Butter Balls

"This recipe came from a book called "The Meatball Cookbook Bible". These make a great snack. I like them best with regular plain granola but the kind with added dried fruit or nuts is great too!"

  • Whisk the peanut butter and honey in a large bowl. Add orange juice and zest and blend until smooth.

    I made these last Saturday night for the Chicago Black Hawks play-off game... we invited our neighbors over for a "Ball" party! (even though its hockey). We served 7 different types of hand held 'ball' appetizers (neighbors brought some balls, also). I made 4 types... these being one of them. These were delicious! Everyone at our party loved them. The best part about these is that there is no baking or frying involved. Yes, they are a bit messy to make, but who cares?! I made them about 2 hours before company arrived, and they were perfectly set and wonderful. (Actually, these were the first of the balls to disappear). I just wish I could figure out how to incorporate some chocolate into them to make them even yummier! Thanks for posting this recipe. (Made for PRMR)

    These are yummy peanut buttery bites. I used some homemade granola and dark honey. I'd use a light honey like acacia or orange blossom in the future, as the deeper flavor masked the orange juice. They did need to sit for a good while in the fridge to harden up and dry out enough to make them easier to handle. Good for kids who need some healthy fat and calories in their diet!

    these are simply wonderful! Messy to make so if you have kids they will love to help :) Just taste soooo good.

    I was quite surprised at how much I loved the flavors of these cookies. I really thought the OJ would overtake the other flavors but I was quite wrong. The taste is so smooth and goes so well together. Easy to make is just another added benefit. Made for Zaar tags.

    Great little gems these are. With the kids out of school, and with me around these were gone in no time. An interesting, yet, wonderful combination of flavors these had. These would be great for kids, as they are easy to make. Made for Prmr tag.
