These goodies are so easy to make that it’s crazy.  If you’re not much of a baker, then you’ll be happy with this recipe because it’s NO BAKE.  That means you’re much less likely to screw anything up.

And if you’re at high altitude and have trouble with baking, you’ll be happy to know that this one won’t get messed up by the altitude either.

The peanut butter part is super simple to mix and form into round little balls with your hands (or your kid’s hands!)  Simple, melted chocolate is drizzled on top… and festive sprinkles of any sort are sprinkled on top for dramatic effect!

If you are a peanut butter lover like me, you’ll probably eat far too many of these.  That just means they’re good!  ‘Tis the season for yoga pants and baggy sweaters!
