VeganMoFo: Dad's Chocolate Peanut Butter Bon Bons
Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Bon Bons [GLUTEN FREE]
Family Member: Dad
Brief Description: Chocolate. Peanut butter. Need I say more? An easy-to-make super sweet confection that will impress pretty much everyone out there.
1 cup chunky peanut butter (smooth also works just fine)
2 tbsp melted butter
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp butter
1. In a medium bowl, combine the peanut butter, melted butter, and powdered sugar. Blend with a fork until well mixed.
2. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour.
3. Combine chocolate chips and solid butter. Heat until melted and smooth when stirred, either in a double boiler or in the microwave.
4. Using a fork, dip the balls in the melted chocolate. Let the excess drip off and place the dipped balls on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until hardened.
Vegan Notes: Just sub Earth Balance (or another vegan butter-like-substance) for the butter and you’re good to go!
