Crunchy Peanut Butter Bon Bons Recipe from Spork-Fed
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
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.
