Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Cookie Balls Recipe

Hubby loves Peanut Butter but the kids aren’t the biggest fan. So when I make something that is a big PB dessert I want it to be both simple and good. These NutterButter Peanut Butter Balls are just that. I found a recipe in the recent addition of Kraft’s food & family magazine but while making it I got lazy and ended up only using what I had on hand so it is mildly different.

Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Cookie Balls Recipe

In large bowl take the Nutter Butter cookies and smash them up. Add softened cream cheese and mix. I found it was easiest to honestly just stick my hands in and get dirty.

Use a small scoop and roll it in the palm of your hands. You should end up with a bunch of 1 inch balls. Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Stick in freezer for 10 minutes.

Melt chocolate and dunk peanut butter balls in chocolate. Place back on parchment covered cookie sheet. Refrigerate for one hour until firm. Keep refrigerated.

Easy, right? Your family will LOVE these and think you spent far longer slaving away making them. Once chilled you can pop them into an air tight container and they even make for crazy easy transporting.

      No I feel the same way. You could buy a fountain and do it that way- I’ve considered the idea. For now I just use two toothpicks.
