Peanut Butter Balls Recipe Notes
These are one of my favourite, easy treats. I think they work great as a healthier holiday treat, but I make them year round. I mix in dried cranberries in these, and I personally wouldn't leave them out. I love the sweet/tart contrast. So good. Chia seeds are optional, just something I add for a little nutritional boost. These balls are naturally sweetened with maple syrup. (other than whatever the chocolate ingredients are.)
I go for good quality chocolate when I make these. I would rather have no chocolate than poor quality chocolate to be honest. You can choose, if you prefer dark chocolate do that, or semi-sweet would be good too. I buy a brand called camino chocolate often, and also there is one called Enjoy Life that is accessible at the grocery stores around me. You can find a lot of vegan options on amazon if sourcing things is difficult.

The trick to rolling the peanut butter rice krispie balls is using damp hands. You'll most likely have to rinse your hands off a couple of times during the rolling process.
I prefer to use an organic brown rice crispy cereal instead of the snap, crackle, pop rice krispies variety. Use whatever you prefer. I usually double the recipe that I am sharing here. The recipe here made 20ish balls but since I buy the cereal just for the purpose of making these peanut butter balls, I go for the double batch more often than not. They can be stored in the freezer, and then just take them out ahead of time when you want a chocolate peanut butter ball treat. I like them best at room temperature.
