No Bake Goo Balls


Rice Krispies mixed with honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract then rolled into a ball for a healthier version of Rice Krispie Treats. Not nearly as sweet as the Rice Krispie Treats but still a fabulous treat.

I learned of Goo Balls from a fellow blogger

After searching the web I found a recipe from






In a  medium pan add the

peanut butter and honey.



Stir well then cook over medium heat,

stirring constantly, until the mixture

comes to a boil. Stir in the vanilla extract.



Pour the Rice Krispies into the pan

and gently toss until the Rice

Krispies are completely coated.



Once the mixture is cool enough to hold,

roll it into small balls and place on waxed

paper to cool and set up then serve.

Store in an airtight container.



My 5 year old grandson asked if he and

his sister could make snowmen out of it.

I thought that would be fun so here is

a picture of their masterpiece.

  1. My kids loved ‘handsy’ recipes back in the day! It’s been years since I’ve done one. Will try this one with my 5-year-old grandnephew, Jordan. Knowing him, he’ll try to make cars! 😄 Thanks!

  2. I make peanut butter rice krispie squares that are very similar. I use corn syrup instead of honey and put them in a pan. I bet the kids would like balls. These have been a favourite of my family for years.

  3. The little snowmen are adorable! I’m going to try this recipe. I was just thinking the other day how I hadn’t made Rice Krispies treats in a while, but I’ll make this instead. 🙂

  4. I totally want to try this! I got curious after Hunida mentioned it but forgot to write it down. Will write it down now.
    Thanks for sharing the recipe Diane!

  5. Thank you dear as that was what we did as children with oat flakes and chocolate. Yes love your version but will have use cornflakes as here no such thing as rice crispies as yet but with so many American troops here building army camps on Russian front maybe we will be graced even with beef steaks soon.
