Healthy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

5 from 1 vote


  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup wheat germ
  • ¾ cup powdered milk
  • ½ cup dark chocolate morsels
  • 2 tsp coconut oil or vegetable shortening


  • Mix honey, peanut butter, wheat germ, and powdered milk until combined. Roll into 1-in balls.
  • To melt the chocolate: put the morsels in a microwave-safe bowl and add the coconut oil or shortening (see Note below). Microwave 30 seconds and stir. Microwave and stir in 10 second increments until chocolate is smooth.
  • Drizzle the chocolate over the prepared peanut butter cookies.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour before serving. Store in the refrigerator.


Coconut oil or shortening has to be used to thin the chocolate and not butter. Butter has water in it and, if added, will make the chocolate seize up.
