- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup crushed graham crackers
- 1/4 cup cannabis-infused butter (optional)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon paraffin wax (for a smooth chocolate coating)
Mixing the Base:
Start by taking a large mixing bowl and combining the creamy peanut butter, crushed graham crackers, (cannabis) butter (if you prefer an extra kick), powdered sugar, and a dash of vanilla extract. Mix these ingredients until they come together into a dough-like consistency.
Rolling Into Balls:
Once your mixture is well combined, it’s time to get your hands a little messy. Take small portions of the mixture and roll them into bite-sized balls. You can adjust the size according to your preference, but remember, these treats are meant to be indulgent!
Freezing for that Perfect Chill:
Pop your peanut butter balls into the freezer and let them chill until they are firm to the touch. This usually takes about 30 minutes, but if you’re in a hurry, you can leave them in for a bit longer while you prepare the chocolate coating.
Preparing the Chocolate Bath:
In a double boiler, gently melt the chocolate chips and add the paraffin wax. Stir continuously until you have a velvety, smooth chocolate syrup. The addition of paraffin wax helps create that glossy finish on your peanut butter balls.
Coating the Balls:
Retrieve your peanut butter balls from the freezer. Now, this is the fun part! Take a toothpick and impale each ball, creating a sturdy handle for dipping. Dip each ball into the chocolate syrup, ensuring it’s completely coated. You can use a spoon to help cover them evenly. Place the coated balls on parchment paper to cool.
Allow Them to Set:
After dipping all your peanut butter balls in chocolate, allow them to sit at room temperature until the chocolate hardens. This will take around 15-20 minutes, but if you’re too eager to taste them, you can place them back in the fridge to speed up the process.
Serve and Enjoy:
Once the chocolate has set, it’s time to indulge! Carefully remove the toothpicks, and you’re ready to savor these heavenly Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Balls. Share them with friends or keep them all to yourself – the choice is yours!
There you have it, a delightful recipe for Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Balls that’s perfect for any occasion. Whether you choose to infuse them with a little cannabis or keep them classic, these treats are sure to become a favorite in your dessert repertoire. Enjoy the creamy, crunchy, and chocolaty goodness – and remember to savor every bite!
