Total Time:35 minutes


  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/3 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 c. butter, melted

  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 c. white chocolate, melted (sub out dark chocolate if you prefer)
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil
  • Sprinkles, for garnish


  1. Line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine powdered sugar, peanut butter, butter, graham cracker crumbs, maple syrup and salt. Using a whisk or hand mixer, mix ingredients until smooth and fully incorporated.
