This Reese’s peanut butter ball is the perfect dessert!
Use your leftover Halloween candy to make this dessert!
No more wasting leftover Halloween candy! Consider creating a Reese’s Pieces dessert version of the classic cheese ball dip using peanut butter as a fun twist – perfect for parties or any occasion. It’s super easy to make, yet looks so fancy, and makes such a yummy treat!
The peanut butter chocolate combination is so irresistible and can be made year-round, but it’s a clever idea to use up leftover candy from Halloween. I’m sure there are some lingering pieces around your house just waiting to be transformed into a showstopping dessert!
A few recipe tips when making a Reese’s peanut butter ball:
- Don’t have Reese’s pieces candy? You could always use M&M’s candy instead, and festive colors would be fun for different holidays, like the red and green ones. You could also roll the ball in chocolate chips and peanut butter chips instead as another option.
- Get creative with dippers. I broke apart pieces of ice cream waffle bowls and served up graham cracker dippers too. You could use graham crackers, chocolate graham crackers, vanilla wafer cookies, or even apple slices would be yummy!
- This is a great dessert to prep ahead of time. Make the peanut butter ball a day ahead of time and keep it wrapped in the fridge, then simply coat in the Reese’s Pieces before setting it out to serve.

Truth: You’ll love this treat to pieces, I promise!
In fact, it’s a little hard to stop eating this peanut butter chocolate goodness. LOL! I think it tastes similar to peanut butter cookie dough or peanut butter cheesecake without all the effort. It’s a fun activity to have the kids help decorate.
What a beautiful-looking dessert cheese ball. Enjoy!
