Peanut Butter Balls

READY IN: 50mins


  • 4
    cups smooth peanut butter (I find that JIF peanut butter has the best flavor and works the best)
  • 1
    cup butter
  • 2
    cups oats
  • 1 -2
    paraffin wax block (optional)
  • 1
    (16 ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional, I'm not really sure of the size bag to get, but it's the basic, most common size bag of ch) (optional)


  • In a medium sized bowl combine powdered sugar and oats; mix well.
  • In a small saucepan melt together the butter and peanut butter until smooth and well incorporated.
  • Add the peanut butter "sauce" to bowl of oatmeal and sugar. Mix together well using a spoon at first, then after "sauce" has cooled slightly use your hands to better mix all ingredients together.
  • Roll into balls about an inch in diameter (or whatever size you wish). Lay formed balls on wax paper or foil until all dough has been used.
  • After forming balls, melt paraffin wax in a double boiler, then add chocolate chips. Melt and mix together well.
  • Place about a handful of peanut butter balls in chocolate wax, being sure to stir in order to coat balls completely. Remove coated balls with a spoon and return to wax paper or foil to cool and dry.
  • Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight bowl in the fridge.
