These Crispy Peanut Butter Balls are a new favorite of mine! They are so simple and easy to make, but something about the rice krispies in them makes them super fun to eat! I just love the texture.
If you knew my long-term relationship with peanut butter, you’d know just how big of a deal it is for me to say that balls filled with peanut butter were eaten by me – let alone have become a new favorite!
I had a back and forth relationship with peanut butter growing up. I remember at some point really liking celery and peanut butter together. Why? How? I have no clue. It sounds gross to me now. But I have a vivid memory of liking it.
Most of my memories though are of not wanting anything to do with anything with peanut butter in it. I know. Crazy, right?
When other kids had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I had jelly sandwiches (I’ve always been a hoarder of sugary things 😉 ). Peanut butter cookie? I’d rather have had no cookie at all. Reese’s? Didn’t touch the stuff. Always traded them away at Halloween.
I know, I know. How was that even possible?? I’m not really sure.
But I’ve since changed my ways! I mean, did you see my Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake last week?!? Clearly I’m a big fan now, but it’s a fairly new peanut butter love affair.
And these Crispy Peanut Butter Balls are feeding my addiction. I really need to never make them again – I’ve eaten so many I have a headache as I type this. But of course I will make them again because I’m addicted.
I love these even more than the traditional buckeye because of the crispies. I didn’t expect it – but the added crunch and texture seriously makes me eat one after the other. It’s a problem. A problem I’d like to pass onto you.
Another great thing about these? No. Bake. Come to me lover. Anything that’s this easy and requires no baking simply rocks.
Plus, I get to yell to the hubs to “bring me my balls!” I just kind of find that fun. I’m a kid, I know.
And you know what? These are perfect for the Super Bowl which is only a few days a way, which means you better get going. Time to make some balls!
