Addictive Peanut Butter Balls

AKA, crack cocaine. Crunchy, sweet, a little salty. Perfection.

These photos are from the second, count it, second batch I made in ONE WEEK. The first, and only other time that I had these little heaven-sent nuggets was in 4th grade at health day in school. Shout out to Whitmore Elementary in Tucson, AZ, circa 1989. I have remembered the addictive flavor and texture for…I guess that makes it about 21 years now. We were all supposed to be running and testing our flexibility but I was the creepy kid at the food station begging the volunteer mom for more. If I had the street smarts back then that I do now I probably would have come back in disguises to really stock up.

Fast forward 21′ish years to a time when I enjoy cooking, or in this case, mixing and can afford my own peanut butter. Agh the glory days. I was a little concerned that it was maybe just nostalgia that made these so addicting to me but a few friends were over this weekend and confirmed that they are yummy. Dang them for eating my stash though. I kid. I kid.

The typical recipe calls for a little more honey than I prefer. I use reduced-fat peanut butter which is a little sweeter anyway. Mom’s this is a great recipe to do with your kids. Let them mix and shape. Non-moms…still totally fun. I made them a little healthier too. They make for a great snack that leaves you feeling full and satisfied for a long time. They can also give you a little boost of energy before a big workout.


1 cup reduced fat peanut butter

1 cup fat-free powdered milk

1/2 cup honey (I use 1/4 cup)


Pour everything into a medium size mixing bowl and stir away until well blended.

Now, take about 2 tbsp (about the size of a ping pong ball) and roll into a ball with your CLEAN hands.

Place on a plate and put in the refrigerator for an hour or so until set.

Put into plastic bags and never share with your friends again.

NOTE: You once these are made into balls you can roll in coconut, nuts, chocolate chips or whatever your heart desires.

Howdy, fellow alum!

Memoria - Couldn’t dads and other caretakers make these with the kids or is that only for the moms? hmmm Anyway, these peanut balls look delcious. I bet they would be good dipped in chocolate, too! If you made these twice in one week, I’m convinced!

Crissie McDowell - Thanks for your comments!

Missus M…what a SMALL world! I loved Whitmore!

Memoria…oh yes! All non-moms meaning men, women, grandparents, kids…the works. It’s such a fun and easy recipe. I hope you enjoy! I am craving right now.
