YIELDS: 32 servings

TOTAL TIME: 55 mins


2 c. confectioners' sugar

1 c. creamy peanut butter

4 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temp

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

9 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Flaky salt and melted red candy melts, for decorating


  • Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt until dough forms into a ball, about 2 minutes.

  • Roll dough into 1-in. balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheet.

  • Freeze until firm, about 20 minutes.

  • Once balls are firm, place chocolate in a small measuring cup and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth.

  • Line a second baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Working with a quarter of the balls at a time (keep remaining frozen), dip in chocolate one at a time, letting excess drip off, and transfer to baking sheet.

  • If desired, sprinkle with flaky salt. Repeat with remaining peanut butter balls.

  • Once chocolate has set, if desired, decorate with melted red candy melts.

  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
