Who does not love peanut butter and chocolate? Well I love it as much as the next person does but I also love fruit and chocolate so I decided to combine all 3 of my loves into one yummy dessert.
I stuffed some of the frozen fruit I had on hand into these but I think other fruit like strawberries, dried cranberries & apricots and even shredded coconut would be great inside of these as well.
These babies are super high in sugar and fat so make them to share so you don’t end up eating the whole plate in front of your favorite tv show before you realize it.
Stuffed Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls
Makes: 12 balls
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/2 cup or more powdered sugar
1/2 bag of vegan chocolate chips (I love Ghirardelli)
Fruit of your choice
Optional toppings: vegan sprinkles, coconut, powdered sugar or use your imagination
Mix the peanut butter and powdered sugar together until it is not sticky but not dry, adding more as you go.
Roll the peanut butter mixture into balls. If just doing peanut butter balls then place them onto a parchment paper covered plate but if stuffing, flatten the ball out enough to fit the fruit piece inside and roll it completely around the fruit. Roll it into a good ball after stuffing and place onto a parchment paper covered plate and insert toothpicks into all the balls. Once you have all the balls rolled put the plate in the freezer for at least 10 minutes while you melt the chocolate.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave or a double broiler.
Remove the peanut butter balls from the freezer and dip immediately in the chocolate coating as much as you want. Return to the freezer or the refrigerator depending on how solid you want them. Within 10 minutes the chocolate will be set and they can be eaten.
The chocolate will have condensation on it once removed from the cold but you can quickly put a paper towel over them to remove it if desired. Now pig out and ENJOY!
