If you like peanut butter, then you will love these chocolate peanut butter balls! They taste amazing and are really simple to make. They are great to do with the kids on those rainy days of the holidays. Isla loves making these, and of course eating them afterwards!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls
As the weather has not been so great recently, we decided to get creative in the kitchen. The cupboards were fairly bare, but luckily I had enough to make one of our favourites, chocolate peanut butter balls.
This recipe is ideal to do with the kids. The only hot part is melting the chocolate, so they can get involved in most of the steps and even very young children can get involved (if you want them to!).
This is actually an old recipe of mine, and the first recipe I ever posted on my blog! I thought it was about time I revisited it and updated it with some more recent photos. I have even added a little free printable version of the recipe too in case you want to print it off and save it for a rainy day activity.
What You Will Need
Made about 12 (depending on the size of your balls!)
- 6 Digestive Biscuits
- 50g melted butter
- 75g Icing Sugar
- 8tbsp Peanut butter
- 150g Bar of Chocolate
How You Do It
- First put the digestives into a plastic bag, and crush them with a rolling pin until they are crumbs. The kids love this bit!
- Place the biscuit crumbs in a mixing bowl, add the melted butter, icing sugar and peanut butter. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
- Place mixture in the fridge for at least half an hour.
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of bowling water (best not to let the kids do this bit!).
- Take the peanut butter mixture out of the fridge, and make into balls. This is great for the kids to do as they love getting their hands dirty! Drop them into to the chocolate individually and use a spoon to coat with chocolate. Then place on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper. It is sometimes easier to melt more chocolate than you need, as it can get tricky with the last few when there isn’t much left in the bowl.
- Refrigerate for at least an hour or until the chocolate is nice and hard. Then simply enjoy!
