Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball Monsters

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball Monsters

  • 2 cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup Butter (softened)
  • 3 3/4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 3 cups Rice Crispies
  • 4 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Shortening
In a large bowl, beat peanut butter and butter until blended. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar. Stir in the Rice Krispies. Shape into 1 inch balls and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave, in a double boiler on the stove or in a Wilton chocolate Pro Electric Melting Pot. Stir until smooth & creamy. Use a toothpick and dip the peanut butter balls in the chocolate and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Place 2 Candy Eyeballs on each chocolate peanut butter ball.  Chill until set.

I would like to make this recipe for the kids at church this year but I cannot use peanut butter due to food allergies.  Does anyone know if this recipe would work using soy butter instead of peanut butter?  I think they would taste good because of all the sugar, butter & chocolate but I don't know if soy butter is sticky enough to hold the balls together.  What do you think?

    4. My LO is allergic to milk, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, soy and mustard. We made these with sun butter and dairy free butter and dairy free chocolate chips. Candy eyes contain egg, but we substituted with a dab of white frosting for the eye ball and chocolate chip for the pupils. Fun and delicious! Thanks!

    5. Thank you! I am going to try making these with soy butter for the kids at church.
