These balls are perfect for parties and birthdays as they are super tasty and versatile.

chocolate peanut butter ballsToday’s recipe for chocolate peanut balls is not keto, as I have used regular icing sugar. But if you skip it or substitute it with stevia, erythritol, or xylitol, you will get perfect keto treats. Also, make sure you use chocolate chips and peanut butter paste that do not contain any sugar.

Is Chocolate Peanut Balls vegan?

In my recipe, I have used dairy butter. For a vegetarian version of chocolate, peanut balls substitute butter with vegan butter – nothing easier can be.

Let’s proceed! In a large mixing bowl, add creamy peanut butter and soften the butter. Using a hand mixer, beat until combined. Now add the icing sugar and mix for about one more minute.

Chop the nuts. If you are using raw nuts for better taste, toss them first. Combine nuts with peanut butter mixture. Add some chocolate chips and mix again. Using an ice cream scoop (or two tablespoons), form balls and arrange them on a pan lined with parchment paper. When done, send them to the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to chill.

*For note: If the mixture is not thick enough to shape the balls, send it for 5 minutes to the fridge.

Remove the balls from the fridge. Using a fork or bamboo skewers, dip each ball in melted chocolate (make sure it is not hot). Arrange the balls back onto the parchment-lined pan. Decorate with a drizzle of chocolate. Chill for at least 20 more minutes.
