peanut butter graham balls

Peanut butter balls/truffles make for a simple no fuss dessert.

There’s no baking required, very little mixing, no waiting for the eggs and butter to warm up to room temperature. Just a few ingredients and steps to follow.

Though I never partake in the eating process here I know most people fully enjoy this treat (D especially). I used to make these peanut butter balls, but when the confectioners sugar ran out I decided to substitute it with graham crackers crumbs. Why not turn these into graham balls? Not a bad taste combination. I’ve made these both with regular and natural organic peanut butter and it works either way.

The only difference being how much graham cracker crumbs you need to add – the natural peanut butter is a lot more liquidy than the regular so you need to add at least 1/2 cup more graham cracker crumbs. Best of all these keep for at least a week in the fridge — if they last that long!

    Highly recommend them for any event. This my new recipe for holiday treats. My mom couldn’t believe that I had made them and that it was so easy.

      It’s a good thing they’re small so if you can limit yourself to one or two I’m sure they’re not too high in calories!
