Vegan Buckeyes

Being from Ohio, buckeyes have been a sweet treat that we make often in our house. A friend of mine has a son who has Autism and is on gluten and dairy free diet. It was his birthday and I wanted to make him something to celebrate so I decided to try to make buckeyes with ingredients he could eat. I am happy to say, he loved them. They were absolutely delicious and the only way I will make them now. Give them a try!


Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup of peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup melted Earths Balance dairy free butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups of enjoy life chocolate chips

Start by mixing the peanut butter, dairy free butter, powdered sugar and ½ cup of the Enjoy Life chocolate chips together.

Once it is well mixed together, roll small balls out of the dough. Place on parchment paper and pop in the freezer for about 15 minutes.

While the dough is freezing, melt the remaining chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 15 seconds. Once the chocolate is melted, begin dropping the frozen balls into the melted chocolate, coating them completely.
