Snickers Balls

Snickers Balls

Posted 2017-06-24 by Naomi follow
Indulgent, seriously good and delicious. I make the caramel centre and then roll in a chocolate layer with nuts. I like the layers but you can make a truffle like ball if you prefer.

These balls make great treats and gifts. They are gluten, lactose, refined sugar free and can be made low FODMAP.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Serves: 12 - 16 balls

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

Method
  • Combine the peanut butter, honey and 1/2 tsp vanilla essence in a bowl and refrigerate for 5 minutes to make it hard.
  • [Image2 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.
  • [Image6 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.

    Tips
  • 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.
