To make the oatmeal peanut butter balls, combine 1 cup of peanut butter, 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a bowl. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Stir 1 1/2 cups of quick oats. Shape the mixture into balls, and store them in an airtight container.
Make chocolate-coated peanut butter balls by combining 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 3 tablespoons of softened butter in a bowl. Slowly stir in 1 cup of sifted powdered sugar. Form the mixture into balls, and allow them to dry on waxed paper. Melt 8 ounces of chopped chocolate-flavored candy coating in a saucepan over low heat. Dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate, and return them to the waxed paper. When the chocolate coating sets, keep the balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
