"No Bake" Elf Ball Bites: Peanut Butter and Mini Chocolate Chip Balls

No bake holiday treats are always great for the kids to make and enjoy. This particular recipe requires the use of a food processor, which mom can oversee for older kids and help with for younger kids.


A mix of creamy peanut butter flavor and sweet chocolate and vanilla, these no bake cookie balls are a delicious kid approved sweet that'll make the holidays even more merry!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
  • 2 cups vanilla wafer cookies
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
Directions

Grind together the peanut butter chips and vanilla wafers in a food processor. Once the mixture is roughly chopped, add in the powdered sugar and process until combined.

Next, add in the water and corn syrup and process until crumbs form a mass.

Spoon the mixture out of your food processor into a bowl and stir in the mini chocolate chips. Pour the sugar into a shallow bowl. Form 1-inch cake balls from the mix and roll them in the sugar.

Store in wax paper lined airtight container in a cool dry place.

Let the balls sit for a few days before eating for best results.

Tip: Add more water if the mixture seems too dry and will not hold its shape when rolled into a ball. Add more powdered sugar if the mixture seems too moist to hold its shape.
