  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Mix corn flakes cereal, confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, and butter together in a bowl. Scoop mixture using a melon baller into balls and arrange on a plate or baking sheet. Refrigerate until solid, at least 3 hours.
  2. Melt chocolate chips and oil in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes.
  3. Grease a baking sheet.
  4. Gently roll peanut butter balls in the melted chocolate until evenly coated; arrange on the same baking sheet.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips at a time (and 1 teaspoon oil) so that I will use all the chocolate before it cools.
