Christmas may be over but holiday dessert recipes are NOT. But then again… are they ever ;) hehe. I am a sugar lover and I therefore love desserts in any shape or form. Hopefully this will not be as huge of a part of my life in the new year since I’m trying to change my eating habits but until then… holidays are still technically here and I will bask in the joy of sweetness.

New Years Eve is tomorrow and therefore I wanted to prepare an easy dessert recipe that you can do at home with only a few ingredients. These are ingredients you might already have on hand, especially if it’s the holiday season. And to show you just how simple this process really is – I’ve created a video of the recipe as I’m preparing it.

Heads up, this is my first recipe video filmed with my dSLRs. I’m trying to use them more often and I definitely know that I need to get a second tripod.. but either way, I’d love to get feedback on the video itself! Let me know what you think in the comments below!

So back to this rice krispie balls recipe. I used peanut butter and coconut as the main flavors – they are lovely together but they are not used together enough in recipes, I think. The coating of dark chocolate adds another lovely dimension to this New Year Eve appetizer or dessert – you’re sure to wow your guests with this one. And your kids!

I went to Walmart and got some Kraft products there to create a simple and easy holiday desserts recipe. These products are essentials and I do tend to have a variety of them on hand – since they are very versatile and can be used in many different recipes. Whether it’s for Christmas dessert recipes, or if it’s another time in the year, it can work for Thanksgiving dessert recipes, but it could really work on any other easy dessert recipes. Gotta love versatility, no?

Chocolate-Glazed Coconut Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls


  • 1-1/4 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1-1/4 cup rice cereal
  • 4 oz dark chocolate bar or chips
  • 7-8 drops stevia (if using unsweetened chocolate like I was)


  • In a large microwavable bowl, put coconut oil and marshmallows. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave in 15 second intervals thereafter, stirring each time, to allow it to melt and form a smooth mixture.
  • Add peanut butter and stir to soften. Melt further in the microwave by microwaving in 30 second intervals until the mixture comes out smooth (mine was good after two 30 sec intervals).
  • Add shredded coconut and combine well.
  • Add rice cereal to the mixture and stir to combine thoroughly.
  • Wet your hands and take the mixture and roll it in your hands to form balls. Put them on an aluminum foil. Put in the fridge for 10 minutes to harden and stick together.
  • After 8 minutes or so, break up the chocolate bar and put in a microwavable bowl.
  • Put in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Put it in for another 30 seconds and stir. Continue in 15 second intervals, stirring between each, until chocolate is melted.
  • Take the balls out of the fridge. Drip some chocolate onto each ball to create the chocolate glazing. If you use more chocolate, you could also coat the balls in chocolate entirely - it's up to you.
  • Put back in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
