>Aspen had an additional cooking request for her visit: Krispy Peanut Butter Balls. They’re simple, delicious, unphotogenic, and oh so bad for you.
1 stick of earth balance, room temperature
2 cups peanut butter
2-3 cups powdered sugar (can’t remember, but this is just like the myriad ‘buckeye’ recipes online)
3 cups rice krispies
1 bag of vegan semi sweet chocolate chips
Mix together all ingredients except for chocolate chips. As gross as it sounds, I find it easier to mix well by using my hands. Shape into balls and refrigerate for an hour or so. Once chilled, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler (or, if you’re like us and don’t have one, use a pyrex bowl that sits inside a pan of water). Dip each ball into melted chocolate. We found that it was easier to accomplish this with less chocolate, so you might want to melt the chocolate chips in batches. Then refrigerate again until the chocolate hardens.
