Ingredients 1/3 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp honey (or maple syrup for low FODMAP)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup peanuts, unsalted
1 cup cashews (or macadamias for low FODMAP)
3 tbsp cacao or cocoa
2 tbsp maple syrup
Combine the peanut butter, honey and 1/2 tsp vanilla essence in a bowl and refrigerate for 5 minutes to make it hard.
The mixture will roll better if cold
In the meantime, put the nuts in a food processor and pulse until broken into a crumb consistency. Place in a bowl.
In another bowl mix the cocoa, maple syrup and 1/2 tsp vanilla essence until combined.
Wet hands and roll tablespoon sized peanut butter mixture into balls, coat in the cocoa mixture and roll in the nuts.
Coat in the chocolate and then roll in the nuts
They can be served immediately or allowed to firm up in the fridge for 20 minutes or freezer for 5 minutes.
Snickers balls are tempting
I like my nuts with a bit of texture but you can make them finer if you prefer.
If you prefer truffle like snickers balls put the ingredients in a food processor and blended until just combined. Roll and eat.
They will store in the fridge for 1 week or can be frozen.
