  • Add the Nutter Butters to a food processor and process until a fine crumbs forms. Reserve 1 tablespoon of crumbs for topping, if desired.
  • Add in the cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter and process until combined.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the mixture and roll into balls. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Add the melting wafers to a bowl and melt on 30-second intervals stirring between each addition until smooth.
  • Use a spoon and fork to dip each of the balls in the chocolate and gently slide off the fork onto the parchment paper to set.
  • After every 4th ball, top the balls with Nutter Butter crumbs, sprinkles, or sea salt before the chocolate sets.
  • Allow the balls to set at room temperature for about 30 minutes until hardened or place in the fridge for about 10 minutes to speed up the process.
  • Store balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


  • Make sure to use whole fat cream cheese for the best flavor and texture.
  • 10 ounces of chocolate chips may be used instead of melting wafers but you will need to add 1 teaspoon of coconut or vegetable oil to the mixture so it doesn’t get too hard to bite through.
  • These balls are pretty firm right after mixing and there is no need for them to chill before being dipped, unlike other similar recipes.
  • I like adding salt to these balls because I think it adds to the overall flavor, but it can be left out.
