Peanut Butter Filling

  • 2 cups peanut butter powder
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup water

Chocolate Coating

  • 8 oz. dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper optional


  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the peanut butter powder, powdered sugar and salt together. Add the water and stir until well incorporated. The batter will be very stiff.
  • Use a cookie scoop to measure out 1 tablespoon portions and place them on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Place the balls into the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until you get a smooth, shiny consistency. (Add the cayenne pepper if desired) Let the chocolate cool but not harden.
  • Remove the peanut butter balls from the freezer and roll them into smooth balls with your hands.
  • Dip them in the melted chocolate, transfer them back to the waxed paper and place them in the refrigerator to set up.
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
