Happy June everyone! Honestly, I wrote this recipe out back in April before Easter; I originally wanted to make Peanut Butter Eggs. The day I made these I did half eggs and half PB Balls. This recipe is slightly different than the usual ones you may see using rice cereal. This unique recipe uses my secret ingredient (sugar cones), which gives it a little bit of a crunch and adds to the sweetness.

Ingredients:
1 Cup (creamy) Peanut Butter
1 Stick of Earth Balance (vegan butter) or ½ Cup, melted
3 Sugar Cones, crushed (place in sandwich/ziplock bag and crush with rolling pin)
1 ½ Cup Powdered Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions (For Peanut Butter):
-Melt butter first then add the peanut butter and vanilla until creamy.

Chocolate Ingredients:
1 ½ Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)
2 Tbsp Soy Milk (or any other non-dairy should work fine)
1 Tbsp Earth Balance (vegan butter)

Directions (For Chocolate):
-Combine all ingredients over a double boiler (for a better consistency) until smooth. Or you can microwave for about two minutes stirring in between.
-Drizzle melted chocolate mixture over peanut butter balls and place back in the freezer for 10 minutes (I am impatient or refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!

As I previously mentioned I changed careers and started a new job a few months back, coupled with finishing up school, times have been very busy. ☹ I’ll be back more consistently soon enough. Miss you all. 😊
