Do you know the 80/20 rule? It’s a self monitored system endorsed by my naturopath which allows for 20% treat eating with 80% healthy eating…or is it 90/10, 85/15?? Get ready to spend your treat quotient on these chocolate covered peanut butter balls.
My lovely niece, Sydney taught me how to make them. She’s 12 and already a great baker. I’m pretty sure we’ll have a shop together someday…maybe cupcakes. We both love the taste sensation that is chocolate and pb so this recipe suits us perfectly.
- 1 cup sifted icing sugar
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 3 tbsp softened butter
- 1 heaping cup milk chocolate chips
Sift the icing sugar into a bowl. Add butter and peanut butter and combine with mixer. Roll into 1″ balls and place on a wax paper lined tray. Leave for 20 minutes to harden. Melt chocolate in microwave for 30 seconds then stir and repeat until smooth. Roll each ball in the chocolate then place back on the wax paper. Using a skewer and fork helps with this and we put a little dab of chocolate over any holes. Refrigerate until hardened. We recommend storing them in the fridge too. Makes 20-30 depending on the size you roll the balls.
Why not whip up a batch this weekend? They’re amaze-balls….seriously!
