Buckeye Balls

1 ½ cup creamy peanut butter

1/3 cup Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Spread, softened

1 tsp vanilla

3 cups confectioners sugar

2 tbsp Earth Balance or dairy free shortening

6 oz Jen’s Zen chocolate sauce

 

In a bowl mix place the peanut butter, Earth Balance and vanilla. Sift the confectioners sugar into the bowl.  With your hands mix all ingredients until a stiff dough is formed.  Line a baking sheet with wax paper and roll the peanut butter mixture into balls, using about 1 1/2 tsp worth of peanut butter dough for each ball. Place on the wax paper lined sheets and put into the refrigerator.

In a separate pan or microwavable bowl, melt together the Jen’s Zen chocolate sauce and shortening until smooth.

Remove the peanut butter balls from the refrigerator. With a toothpick pick up one ball at a time and dip it into the melted chocolate mixture. Return to the wax paper chocolate side down.  Place the sheets back in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until firm.  Serve with toothpicks.
