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.

I liked this recipe, although the chocolate coating calls for too much coconut oil. I would suggest reducing to 1 Tablespoon vs. 3 Tablespoons, otherwise most of the coating with puddle around the ball like mine did. I made a minor adjustment by using coconut butter in place of butter. The subtle coconut taste comes through perfectly. I would make these again!

I liked this recipe as well but made a few minor adjustments that made it work with what I had on hand. Instead of coconut oil, I used a half teaspoon of coconut extract added to the chocolate chips and one tablespoon on vegetable shortening that I add microwaved for two minutes. I then stirred them together with the coconut extract added after microwaving. I also found the dipping amount short and made a half batch again. Again, thank you for this as my mother in law used to make something similar years ago and I lost the recipe.
