Peanut Butter Chocolate M&M Balls 

Oh the holiday’s… Filled with ugly sweaters, too many family parties, and food that kills your New Years diet before it even begins. I’m here to continue that trend with this extremely addicting and wildly unhealthy treat. Seriously, it took a lot of willpower not to just eat the peanut butter filling with a spoon before the party even started. These chocolate peanut butter goodies also only take about 35 minutes to make and can be made with ingredients you most likely already have in your home. This makes it the perfect last-minute treat to bring to your next holiday party.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup (one stick) melted butter
  • M&M’s to taste (leave a few for decoration at the end)
  • 12oz package of chocolate chips

Step 1: Melt your stick of butter. I melted mine in the microwave. Add the melted butter, peanut butter, and powdered sugar to a bowl and mix until smooth.

Step 2: Add the Christmas mini M&M’s next. The original recipe used traditional colored and sized M&M’s but I thought I would spice it up a bit for the holiday.

 

 

Step 3: Roll the filling into balls and place on parchment paper. I was able to make about 25 medium to large sized balls. Next time I make these, I will make them a little smaller.

Step 4: Place them into the freezer for around 20 minutes or until hard.

 

Step 5: Melt your chocolate in the microwave. I would recommend melting for around a minute and 15 seconds stirring every 15 seconds. 

 

 

 

 

Step 6: cover your peanut butter balls in the melted chocolate and top off with M&M’s for decoration.

Step 7: Put back in freezer to let them set.
