  1. Hi, I made these peanut butter balls tonight but I used Hershey’s milk chocolate morsels I followed the directions but the problem I ran into why is that my chocolate seem to be a little too thick some when I tried to dip the balls into it it would come off of my Fork and if it’s just a little hard to get to chocolate right they didn’t turn out bad but there’s a little more chocolate on them that I wanted but great recipe they are very rich the Great! Can you give me some advice on my chocolate I would appreciate it thank you!

  2. Would you have a weight quantity for the 1-1 1/4 cups of chocolate; or are you specifying semi-sweet chips? Thank you ????

  3. Made these using Extra Crunchy peanut butter and Chocolate graham crackers instead. I made mine a bit on the large side. They froze well and the melted semi-sweet chips are a nice smooth finish. Didn’t add anything to roll it in as this recipe is enough to already cause diabetes ๐Ÿ˜› Cannot wait to see what my peanut butter chocolate-loving husband thinks of this when he tries it tomorrow

  4. I just made these while sitting out the Blizzard here in New England! Delicious. I used salt free Peanut Butter (melted a little). They turned out great. My old recipe called for sugar & butter, so these are just right and not overly sweet like they usually are! Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Love the recipe! After pinning it, didn’t take long to rush out but the few things I needed an make them for my family! As us women know there’s a certain time we crave chocolate an sweets and last weekend was mine! They turned out amazing! Simple recipe yet taste like they were bought in a candy shop! The only thing I changed is half crunchy pb and half regular pb. Crunchy seems to have lots of nuts an I wanted some but not over powering, so the regular balanced it out perfectly! Can’t wait to see what else I can make for the family. Thank you!

  6. Yummy! Great overall taste and pretty presentation. My only issue was that, as another reviewer said, the balls were a little crumbly even after freezing and so using a toothpick didn’t work as well as simply rolling them around in the melted chocolate. Also, similar to many recipes that require chocolate dipping, it often requires more dipping chocolate than specified by the recipe. I agree with whoever said that you should make the peanut butter balls small — they get considerably larger when covered in chocolate.

  7. Thank you for every other informative blog. Where else may just I get that type of information written in such a perfect manner?
    I have a undertaking that I am simply now operating on, and I’ve been at the look out for such information.

  8. You could probably use Almond butter as a substitute for peanut butter. But these look awesome! I am going to make these as a treat for my theater class

  9. Also, a tip for those who said their chocolate was too clumpy. Add a tbs of vegetable shortening to it while melting. I do this for my cake pops, and chocolate covered strawberries. Helps it smooth out and it is still amazing!

  10. I didn’t have graham crackers so I used pretzels. I dipped some in milk chocolate and some in dark. Then topped with chocolate chips and sprinkles. Soo yummy!!! Thank you for the great ideas!

  11. OMG! I just made these and they are awesome! I did not freeze them long enough so they kind of exploded but they still taste amazing. Great alternative to buckeyes because they are not as sweet.

  12. hi! looks like this recipe is great for this season gift giving, but i wanna ask if it melts quickly once it’s out from the fridge? how long does it take to melt? cause i wanna give this as a gift.

  13. I just made these and they are fantastic.
    I used significantly less of the graham cracker crumbs than it calls for, about half a cup, I don’t know if that is because I used organic peanut butter, also I double dipped mine for a bit more chocolate flavor and rolled them in Heath bits. I am definitely going to make them again for Christmas!

  14. The one thing that is missing is powder sugar in the mixture, very bland. I used natural peanut butter and it was not sweet enough, according to my family. Now I have 28 balls and no one will eat them :S.

  15. I am so going to make these. I just cleaned out my pantry this morning and found 2 unopened boxes of graham crackers!
    Perfect timing! Thanks.

  16. Avoid any problems with graham crackers not crushing well…. Use a bag of graham cracker crumbs. As well, if you think they are crumbling…. You need more peanut butter. If you think they are too sticky… You need more crumbs.

  17. Thank you for this recipe. I tried making these before but I added some roasted oats. I dont have a food processor but our supermarkets sell crushed graham biscuits. They come in handy packs ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been looking for a good base for my cake pops, and I found this site! Thank you again ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. If you use bakers chocolate instead of melted chocolate chips the chocolate will stay hard after it has set up in the freezer. You won’t have to store them in the fridge once they set.

  19. what are graham crackers? They look awesome but not sure what to substitute (or where to find the graham bickies)’ thanks.

  20. I did not have any luck with these, after I froze the balls i used a toothpick to pick them up and they crumbled I froze them again and picked them up with my hands to dip them in the choc which did not cover well, it jsut sort of blobbed on the ball. I put them in the fridge again but thought the taste wasn’t particularly remarkable. too much effort for the end product

  21. These graham cracker-peanut butter calls look scrumptious!!! I love all of these ingredients and usually keep them on hand! I can’t wait to try out this recipe! You have some yummy recipes.

  22. Oh my WORD. I want to make these RIGHT NOW. Okay, to be more honest–I want to EAT THESE right now!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for a great sounding recipe! I can’t wait to try it out!

  23. So, Im making these right now, and they are delicious, but I thought Id give a few tips. First of all, I made a double batch, thinking there wouldn’t be enough, but they are very rich. One or two will me good per person. Just a couple things to keep in mind
    – I hand-crushed my graham crackers, because my sis doesn’t have a food processor, and i thought I did a pretty good job. However, my balls are much more crunchy (and I used creamy peanut butter) than the picture shows. Still, delicious, though!
    -Make sure you buy extra toppings, I had to run out to the store and get more chocolate for dipping, and more choc chips to roll them in.
    -I used crushed heath bars on half, and mini choc chips on some, until I ran out. The picture shown uses mini choc chips, and I think the mini ones are the better than the large. When I ran out to get more choc chips, they only had the big ones, and I can tell its going to be too much.
    -Make sure when you are making the balls, they aren’t very large. Once you roll them in the chocolate, and the toppings, they get a lot bigger.
    – I bought the dipping chocolate that they sell at the store, and I think it work better than just melted chocolate (i used it when I ran out), because its a little thinner, and it covers easier.
    -When I tried to use a fork to dip my balls in the chocolate, the balls fell apart (this may be due to my grainer consistency) but i just ended up rolling them around in the chocolate (which may have contributed to running out of chocolate).

    I love them, and I have a feeling they are going to get rave reviews, but I thought the tips might help some of you!

  26. dana, try a soy butter instead. In my grocery, it’s located right next to all the rest of the nut butters.

  27. Any ideas for a peanut butter substitute? We are often asked to bring nut – free stuff to events.

  28. These look so yummy! Any ideas for a peanut butter substitute… I don’t like pb, and so often we are asked to bring nut-free stuff to events these days.
