Vegan Peanut Butter Balls

I love making cookies and treats for the holidays. I used to make 15 different kinds of cookies, fudge, candy's and breads every December and give them as gifts to my family and friends. These Peanut Butter Balls were enjoyed by everyone. They are really easy to make too. Let's get started.

Here is what you will need. 
1 cup of organic peanut butter
1 24 ounce bag of vegan powdered sugar minus about 1 cup
2 sticks of vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
1 1/2 tbsp vanilla
1 12 ounce bag of vegan chocolate chips

In a medium stock pan, melt the butter and peanut butter. Once they are melted, remove from the heat. Add the vanilla. The liquid is super hot so please be careful. Slowly add the powdered sugar about a cup at a time. Do not add to much or it will not roll into balls properly. It will just crumble. Once you have added most of the powdered sugar, it should be cool enough to touch. Take a little and give it a test roll. If it rolls like play dough, you are good to go. If it is to greasy, add a little more powdered sugar. Just do not add too much.

Before you continue rolling, melt the chocolate in a double broiler and let it sit. 

Using a cookie scoop, scoop the dough and roll into a ball. Place it on some waxed paper. You do not need to use a cookie scoop but it does help keeping them consistant in size. If you do not have a scoop, measure about a tablespoon for each ball and continue rolling.

Get a tall drinking glass and put a piping bag or a storage bag inside the glass. Pour the melted chocolate into the bag. Then pull up the sides of the bag and twist. Cut the tip of the bag and begin piping or squeezing the chocolate on to each peanut butter ball while keeping the end twisted and closed.

Let them sit until the chocolate hardens. You can enjoy them now though. Yum, Yum, Yuuuuummmmm!!
