Ingredients to Make This Recipe:

To make these healthier cheesecake balls at home, you only need 5 simple ingredients:

  • Light cream cheese
  • Plain greek yogurt
  • Honey
  • Natural peanut butter
  • Dark chocolate chips

How to Make No-Bake Cheesecake Balls:

Step 1: Make the Cheesecake Filling

In a stand mixer or with hand beaters, mix together cream cheese, greek yogurt, peanut butter, and honey. Place the mixture in the refrigerator for about 1 hour so that we can scoop it into balls.

Step 2: Scoop into Balls and Freeze

After refrigerating the cheesecake mixture, use a small cookie scoop to scoop the mixture into balls onto a sheet of parchment paper. Place the cheesecake balls in the freezer for 20 minutes to harden.

Step 3: Dip Cheesecake Balls in Chocolate and Refrigerate

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips in 30 second increments in the microwave until smooth and creamy melted chocolate is achieved. After 20 minutes in the freezer, remove balls and dip each one in melted chocolate to coat. Refrigerate again to let chocolate cool, then enjoy!

Substitution Suggestions:

  • Cream cheese: If you want to make this recipe vegan, substitute with a plant-based cream cheese spread.
  • Greek yogurt: For a higher protein treat, use skyr yogurt. To make this recipe vegan, substitute with a plant-based greek-style yogurt.
  • Honey: You can substitute this with another liquid sweetener like maple syrup or agave.
  • Dark chocolate: Substitute with semi-sweet chocolate chips.

How to Store The No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls:

Store the no bake chocolate peanut butter balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week. You can also freeze them up to 1 month, but I recommend letting them thaw for 10-15 minutes before eating as they will be quite hard when frozen.
