Christmas No Bake Peanut Butter Balls are one of my favorite Christmas treats! Peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite combinations and I will use any occasion as an excuse to eat them. They are fun to make, albeit a little sticky, but worth the small mess you might make when creating these delicious bite size desserts.

How to Make No Bake Peanut Butter Balls

To make Christmas No Bake Peanut Butter Balls, you will need basic baking tools such as parchment paper and mixing bowls. No special tools are needed for this no bake dessert.

Combine peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar in a large bowl and mix until it forms a smooth dough.

Shape the dough into one-inch balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This is where it can get a little sticky. I will rub flour on my hands if the “dough” is sticking to my hands too much.

Refrigerate the peanut butter balls for at least 30 minutes.

Microwave the chocolate chips and coconut oil in 30 second intervals or until smooth and melted.

Take the peanut butter balls out of the refrigerator and dip a portion of the ball in the melted chocolate. You can dunk the whole peanut butter ball in the chocolate, if you prefer. I used 2 spoons to let the excess chocolate drip off. 

Add sprinkles to the chocolate and set on parchment paper to dry.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.
