Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls… doesn't that name oozes yumminess? I have always loved Peanut butter! Now that I've discovered the joy of homemade peanut butter, I tend to keep a jar ready at all times.
Btw, how do you like to eat your PB… is it with your toast or your smoothie or in your salad dressing or in your desserts? My fav is eating it straight from the jar ;)
We both love Reese's peanut butter cups, so my initial plan was to try a homemade version of that but as always plan got changed at the last minute. Anyways, no worries, these chocolate peanut butter balls turned out really good, if I say so myself.
It's super easy to make, has minimal ingredients, and kinda healthy dessert. For a healthier version, use dark chocolate and homemade peanut butter. I love dark chocolate ones but Jose likes milk chocolate.
So, what will be your pick, dark or milk chocolate? Do give it a try and let me know what you think.
Here is the recipe…
- 125 gms Goodday biscuit (you can use any butter biscuit)
- 10-12 tbsp Creamy peanut butter
- 150 – 175 gms Dark/milk chocolate
- Crush the biscuits coarsely. You can pulse it in a mixie or crush using your hands. Keep 1 tbsp of crushed biscuits aside.
- Add peanut butter to the rest of the crushed biscuits. Mix it and shape into balls. You can start by adding 8 – 10 tbsp of peanut butter and see if the mixture holds shape, if not add more peanut butter.
- Refrigerate the shaped balls for 1-2 hours, till it's set.
- Meanwhile melt the chocolate using double boiler method or in microwave.
- Line 1-2 trays with baking/parchment paper.
- Dip the refrigerated balls in the melted chocolate , shake off the excess and rest it on the parchment lined trays.
- You can decorate the chocolate -covered balls by piping with leftover melted chocolate/sprinkles or with crushed biscuits. Transfer to the fridge till the chocolate sets.
- Once the chocolate is set, transfer it to an air tight container and store in the fridge for upto a week.
