Crunchy Peanut Butter Bon Bons Recipe from Spork-Fed
Ingredients:
¼ cup Earth Balance® Natural Buttery Spread
1 ½ cups organic powdered sugar
1 cup creamy Earth Balance® Peanut Butter
1 cup organic unseasoned bread crumbs
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (12 ounce) package dark chocolate chips (we used Enjoy Life brand)
1 tablespoon neutral tasting oil
¼ cup ground peanuts, combined with 1 teaspoon organic sugar and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon *Optional

Directions:
In large bowl or standing mixer, combine Earth Balance®, powdered sugar, peanut butter, bread crumbs, cinnamon, sea salt, and vanilla extract. Stir well, mixing until uniform.

Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze until hard, about 20 minutes.

Create a double boiler by placing 1 to 2 inches of water in a small pot. Cover with a metal or heat-proof glass bowl. Add the chocolate chips and cook over a medium flame until the chocolate melts. Stir in the oil and cook until smooth.

When the peanut butter balls are frozen, remove them from the freezer and dip each bonbon in the melted chocolate using a skewer or small fork.

Place the dipped bonbons back on the parchment paper to dry. Top with an additional dollop of chocolate or ground peanut mixture, if using.

Freeze until ready to serve. Let the bonbons sit at room temp for 5 minutes before serving.

Mmmm, mouthwateringly delicious! Enjoy these nutty frozen treats while you get your entries ready to win the Spork-Fed book contest! Don’t forget, you have until this Saturday to enter!

    Oh my goodness!! This is bad…very bad…I already have an addiction to peanut butter. Add chocolate and we’re in trouble. Add coconut and we’re in double trouble. Make them small and easy enough to just grab and throw right into your mouth…*shake my head* (LOL) Oh well I’ll make them anyways!! I have a feeling this is going to be my new favorite recipe! I definitely want to play around with the recipe a bit maybe add coconut oil in place of regular oil… Thank you Spork Sisters and EB for sharing this new recipe!!

    Hmm favorite frozen treat? In the summer I had a blast making fresh fruit pops. Now, homemade cookie dough :) and of course Coconut Chocolate Date balls

  7. Wow, these look amazing! I might try them with almond butter, since I love, love, love almond butter with chocolate! They seem like they might be good NOT frozen too, as it’s getting cooler these days…I cannot get enough of dark chocolate coconut cream. If I ever have a craving for a frozen treat, dollars to donuts that’s what it’s for!

    Holy mackerels. I love peanut butter way more than is probably healthy.

    Frozen wise, I guess maybe Ciao Bella’s sorbets or just a good cold smoothie.

    we made these as a kid… when dipping them we left a round spot of peanutbutter exposed and called them “buckeyes”.

  13. Those look amazing!!

    As for my favorite frozen treat… ice cream! I really need to pull out my ice cream maker and make some coconut base ice creams. I made a chocolate peanut butter ice cream last year that was the best ice cream I had ever had!

  14. oh be still my heart! these sound wonderful (and will probably find their way into my menu plan for next week! lol) I’m betting they would be terrific with Earth Balance Coconut Spread too!
