Back when I was knee-high to a grasshopper (do people still use this phrase?) my Grandma taught me her secret recipe for dark chocolate peanut butter balls. My internet friends of the universe, I still dream about those packed-with-refined-sugar balls filled with childhood-memories to T-H-I-S very day.
But, alas, Grandma no longer makes them and I could NOT get the exact same flavor that she did without using some questionable, not-so-nourishing ingredients.
I also suspect it’s because all Grandmas use the secret ingredient of LOVE. Future Grandma GOALS.
I tried some vegan cookie dough stuffed peanut butter bites. But, just NOT THE SAME.
Do you ever just get to the point where you realize that something just IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, no matter HOW LONG, HOW HARD you try to force it into the MECCA of healthy peanut butter ball heaven, so you MUST do a complete 180 (or is it 360?) and head in a DIFFERENT DIRECTION?
Case in point: the fact that we’ve ditched the peanut butter and swapped in creamy swirls of toasty almond butter.
WITH these crunchy bits of cereal that are going to make your inner-texture-freak-self SO pumped about the opportunity to pop handfuls of crispy-creamy-chocolatey bites into your mouth one after the other.
They might even just MAGICALLY disappear without you even realizing it. Not that you ate them all in one sitting or anything, right?
It was clearly that almond butter-stealing-gremlin that lives in your kitchen. We all have one.
The method is RLY RLY RLLLLLLLLY simple:
All you have to do is beat (unsweetened!) applesauce with velvety smooooooth almond butter and add in a little powdered coconut sugar, until it starts to form a crumbly, cookie-like dough.
P.S: Use a SMALL food processor to make your sugar. Or else…well, it doesn’t work. I tried it for you.
STEP 2: Crush in some crispy bites of cereal and MIX MIX MIX.
NUMERO 3: Pack into balls. <– I say “pack” because “roll” does NOT work. Your balls will just break apart. Sort of like your heart.
PRESS ON my internet friends because the ULTIMATE snack experience is just around the corner.
CAUTION: do NOT add more applesauce. Unless you like mushy cereal. Which, you don’t
You’re almost there!
Finally, let each bite swirl around in a warm, melty smooth chocolate bath. Tasting the chocolate to ensure quality is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED.
You should be feeling like a snacking GODDESS right now.
‘Cause every single blissful bite is going to be food heaven in your mouth.
