  • 2 C powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 C smooth SunButter or other nut butter alternative
  • 2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted Enjoy Life Foods or Nestle Simple Delicious


  1. Mix the powdered sugar and SunButter until well combined. If the mixture is too gooey, you can add more powdered sugar a tablespoon at a time until it is firm enough to handle. Using your hands roll into small bite sized balls. 

    Using a double-boiler or microwave, melt the chocolate just until smooth. 

    Using two forks, use one fork to gently dip the bite sized balls one-by-one into the melted chocolate, and then alternately using the second fork to transfer to a wax paper covered cookie sheet, shaking excess chocolate before transferring.  

    Once all balls have been dipped, set in fridge for about 10-15 minutes just until chocolate is set. 

Recipe Notes

You'll notice in the picture that there are some that are chocolate covered, and some that are "naked". My son that has a peanut allergy, actually LOVES the plain ones with no chocolate, and the rest of us love them covered. So good either way!
