Ingredients

Peanut Butter Ball:

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 11 tablespoons peanut butter

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened

Chocolate Coconut Shell:

  • 6 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil

Directions

  1. Stir confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, and butter together in a bowl using your hands until well mixed. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls and arrange on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze peanut butter balls while preparing chocolate shell.

  2. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil together in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove double boiler from heat and set aside for 5 minutes.

  3. Remove peanut butter balls from freezer and dip each ball into the melted chocolate until evenly coated. Place coated peanut butter balls back on the baking sheet.

Cook's Note:

If the chocolate mixture does not harden on the peanut butter balls, put the coated balls in the freezer for about 10 more minutes or until the shell has hardened.
