Peanut Butter Graham Cracker Balls make for a simple no fuss dessert. Only 4 ingredients required to make these delicious graham balls.
Peanut butter graham cracker balls make for a simple no fuss dessert. I mean dessert does not get any simpler than this!
There’s no baking required, very little mixing, no waiting for the eggs and butter to warm up to room temperature. There’s 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 peanut butter graham cracker 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 peanut butter graham cracker balls keep for at least a week in the fridge — if they last that long (which I am positive they will not)!
If you’re interested in learning how to make an easy dessert with no cooking required I’ve got you covered with these peanut butter graham cracker balls! If you’ve got limited time and a chocolate lover in the house you can easily surprise them with this delicious treat in only minutes. If you do not have any graham crackers you could try this recipe with something like a ritz or saltine cracker crushed into crumbs — it will work that way too! Trust me I’ve tried all the cracker crumb combinations!

I’m gaining weight just by looking at them!
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!
