How to Make Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls (With Video Instructions)

If you haven’t made candy before you might be thinking it would be hard to make. Some candy recipes are more difficult than others but this chocolate covered peanut butter balls recipe is an easy one.

Who can resist a yummy ball of peanut butter wrapped up in chocolate? It like a peanut butter cup but in a nice bite sized shape. These are definitely as good, but I’d say better than the store bought version.

Not only is this chocolate covered peanut butter balls recipe delicious to eat but they can make a wonderful food gift for someone who loves peanut butter and chocolate. Pack them into a gift box or into a decorative tin for gift giving.

This chocolate covered peanut butter balls recipe is one of the recipes I always add to my Christmas cookie and candy plates to give away to family and friends each Christmas.

I think I started helping make this recipe when I was just a kid. I would help my grandma roll the peanut butter mixture into balls. I would always steal a little bite or two. Because I just couldn’t resist. My kids love to do this too.

Then we would carefully dip them into the pot of melted chocolate. Making them the perfect balance of chocolate and peanut butter. Although they don’t always look perfect, they still taste great.

I have another peanut butter balls recipe that includes rice cereal added. It does give it a more crunchy texture inside to the peanut butter filling. I really prefer to have a more creamy center, but maybe the crunchy texture is more what you are looking for?


  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
  • 3 tablespoons Butter or Margarine
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 pound of Candy Coating or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Melt the butter slightly and add it to a mixing bowl. Add the peanut butter and using the spatula or the spoon mix well. You want all the butter and peanut butter mixed together.
  2. Add the powdered sugar. Mix to combine well. I find it’s easier to start with a spoon mixing and then finish mixing with a spatula to really get it all incorporated well.
