Peanut Butter Canon Balls

Updated as of 3/3/2017.

I recently just discovered this old recipe that I posted back in September of 2011 when I was working as a Site Director at the YMCA. I forgot how easy, delicious, and simple this no bake ball was until I made again earlier this week. I made them with my own kids and we decided to call them Peanut Butter Canon Balls for a fun pirate themed treat. 

The recipe is super easy, a no bake that all kids and adults will enjoy (with the exception of those who are allergic to peanut butter). You can also add chunks of chocolate or chocolate chips, grated nuts if you're not a coconut fan, or even use sun butter instead of peanut butter for those with allergies. I plan on experimenting with this recipe until I find the right combination for my family.



Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter 
  • 1 cup Rice Crispy cereal 
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut 
Directions:

1. Mix together peanut butter, powdered sugar, and cereal in a large mixing bowl.

2. Roll mixture into 1 inch balls with your palms and than roll the balls in the coconut and place on a baking tray.

3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer.

Yup, they are that easy! Enjoy, these little Canon Balls are the bomb-dot-com. 

Have a wonderful day and feel free to leave a comment with some other combinations to try.
