postheadericon Chocolate-Covered Peanut-Butter Balls

This Recipe Contains Peanuts!

This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free, family-friendly recipe! It is also (if you double check ingredients!) a wheat free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, fish free, shellfish free, corn free, and vegan recipe.

My grandmother makes a recipe similar to this, but hers has graham cracker crumbs in it. I adore hers, and these are pretty darn good, and without the gluten or dairy!

Chocolate covered peanut butter balls


  • 4 cups powdered sugar

  • 1 stick margarine (aka 1/2 cup), melted
  • 2 cups (or 1 18 oz container) chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (use the thick part from a chilled can)
  • 1 TBS vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 bags (12 oz size) chocolate chips/chunks (aka 3 cups)
  • 3 TBS shortening (we use Spectrum)
  • several lightly salted peanuts

Combine ingredients through salt. Mix well.

Scoop into walnut-sized balls, and place on waxed paper. Chill in refrigerator (or back porch in winter) for at least an hour.

Melt the chocolate & shortening together, and use a fork or spoon to dip the peanut butter balls in the chocolate.

Decorate each one with a peanut on top. Chill again, then eat! Mmmm….

    I guess I don’t exactly understand the ingredients. You list it as dairy, soy free,etc, but the recipe calls for a stick of margarine. I, so far, have been unable to find any subs for butter or margarine that does not contain either dairy, casein or soy. If there is such a product that can be used for baking and cooking, please tell me what it is.I would like to make the recipe, but was immediately stumped by the margarine. Thanks

  • Roni:

    Try Kosher margarine such as Mother’s. Check the ingredients but usually no dairy, no soy, comes in sticks. From what I understand powdered sugar contains cornstarch to keep it from clumping so if you have a problem with corn you might want to check the ingredients.
