Not-So-Guilty Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls


I fondly recollect making vacation treats amongst my mom. An addictive too fantastically slow favorite, unremarkably made for Christmas, were classic peanut butter balls. No incertitude many of us recollect those chocolate-coated treats amongst rice crispy cereal included for added mash too texture. I never could resist peanut butter, too it often features inwards my no-bake treats too liberate energy bites.

The exclusively problem amongst the classic ones I enjoyed every bit a tyke is that they are much likewise sugary for my tastes now. In add-on to icing sugar, mom used not-so-natural peanut butter — you lot know the variety that isn't but terra firma peanuts but instead a sugary spread. I loved them anyway, but over the years I've searched for healthier alternatives to satisfy my sweetness tooth.

I've stayed truthful to the simplicity of the master copy recipe but left out butter, too used natural peanut butter too sweetener. I fifty-fifty bought a box of "healthy" sprouted rice crisp cereal, although I don't intend that's actually necessary — I shouldn't convey felt guilt if I had used Rice Krispies, to tell the truth. But I dare nation that this not-so-guilty version is fifty-fifty tastier too exactly every bit addictive every bit the original, too it also happens to endure vegan friendly. Happily, if the urge to over-indulge is resisted, they are proficient for you lot too.

When stirred in, the mixture volition thicken, then allow it sit down afterwards adding a chip earlier adding more. The mixture earlier shaping should endure moist, but neither likewise dry out nor sticky.
