I pulled this out of the archives the other day. I can't believe I forgot about this one! It was given to me buy a friend years ago and adopted from the recipe in the Chef's Chocoalte Salty Balls song from South Park. They taste like crunchy Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
Santa's Chocolate Salty Balls
3 cups GF rice bubbles
4 1/2 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup vegan margarine
2 cups peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
500g vegan chocoalte
In a large (and I mean large) bowl sift the icing sugar and mix through rice bubbles.
In a medium pan heat the margarine and peanut butter on a low heat until mixed through and melted.
remove from heat and stir into the icing sugar mix until completely mixed through.
You can use your hands if you like, you're going to use them to roll anyway.
In a saucepan boil some water and place a heat proof bowl (larger than the opening of the saucepan) on top.
Add in broken bits of chocolate and stir until melted.
You might want to use an oven mit to hold the bowl as it gets hot and can steam.
Have a mini muffin tray ready with mini muffin wrappers.
Grab a small amount of mixture and make a ball in your hand.
Drop into the chocolate and cover.
Spoon out and drop into wrapper.
Repeat until finished with the mixture.
Fridgerate until hard.
These will freeze well also.
Note: if your mixture is too crumbly to form balls then add some more melted butter.
If you want to be lazy you can add the melted chocolate straight into the mixture and mix thoroughly. Then form balls from that mixture. It will still set fine.
Variation: If you prefer white chocolate balls you can just use a mixture of white chocolate and peanut butter as your coating.
