I remember when we needed a quick snack, someone would say, let’s make peanut butter balls! (Or another quick, no bake recipe we made on the spur of the moment were these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars that taste just like a Reese’s!)  It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s delicious. Our Mom was very gracious in allowing us do stuff on our own in the kitchen when we were learning how to cook and bake. We probably made more work for her and maybe she cringed watching us at times, but she always willingly let us try out new things and recipes. Thanks Mom!

 

 

If you know a peanut butter lover, this peanut butter cookbook would make a great gift!

What are peanut butter balls made of?

These peanut butter balls are made of peanut butter, water, powdered sugar, nonfat dry milk and graham cracker crumbs.

Do peanut butter balls have to be refrigerated?

Yes! These stay together much better when refrigerated. If left at room temperature, they will become soft and lose their shape.

How long can protein balls last?

These will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator when stored in an airtight container. You can also freeze them in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

 

 

Mix all the ingredients except the graham cracker crumbs.
