With all the things happening this time of year, it can really take its toll on everyone. That’s why I like to keep things easy when it comes to making goodies.
No need to slave away in the kitchen for hours to make these super delicious treats. They take less than an hour & which includes chill time.
Peanut Butter Balls Recipe
I grabbed some O Organics® Peanut Butter & 51% Cocoa Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips along with the other ingredients for these peanut butter balls.
O Organics, available in the Northern Idaho area exclusively at Safeway, offers a wide variety of USDA-certified organic products that are available to everyone at a great value.
We love that Safeway makes it easy to eat healthier with such a wide variety of products, including everything I need for my favorite holiday treats.

Here are some commonly asked questions
Can I use milk chocolate chips instead?
Yes, that will work just fine. They will have a slightly different flavor, but they are still delicious.
Can I use a sugar substitute?
I have not personally tried it, so I can’t say how that would turn out. But if you would like to try it, I suggest a product that offers a 1:1 swap. Please let me know how it turns out.
Can these peanut butter balls be frozen?
Yes, I do it often. It usually starts with me putting them in there to chill faster when I’m in the process of making them. I’m very impatient.
But then I get side-tracked and forget about them in there. I usually find them the next day and they are always fine.
For long-term freezing, make sure to put them in an airtight container or zip-top bag after the chocolate has set.
Safeway is my one-stop-shop for all my holiday baking needs. Safeway has over 400 USDA-certified O Organics products in nearly every aisle.
I love that they believe that great-tasting organic food should be available to everyone.
It can be hard to find organic foods here in our small town. If it wasn’t for Safeway I’d have to travel pretty far to find them.
Check out the video tutorial for this recipe. It’s is as simple as mixing the ingredients, rolling into balls & coating in chocolate.
The recipe doubles well & I would suggest you DO double it. These are a favorite with every one I make them for. They go pretty quick, so I usually make a triple batch.
