- 1/2 cup softened salted butter
- Vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon
- 3 1/2 cups confectioners’ swerve (if not keto, use powdered sugar)
- Lily’s semisweet chocolate chips, 3 cups (If keto is not an option, chocolate wafers are the simplest to melt.)
- Coconut oil, 1 tbsp
- In a sizable dish or stand mixer, combine the butter, vanilla, and peanut butter. Cream the ingredients for 30 seconds.
- Swerve or powdered sugar should be sifted into the basin and then beaten until smooth.
- The mixture needs 30 minutes in the fridge to cool.
- The peanut butter mixture should be portioned out(medium cookie scoop), rolled into balls.
- Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- In the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes, spread them out on the baking sheet.
- The coconut oil and chocolate should be melted in a large glass over a period of time, stirring between each interval of 30 seconds, just before removing the balls from the freezer.
- Dip the balls in the melted chocolate. Put the toothpick back in the ball after using a fork to help with the process.
- To lightly cover the hole left by the toothpick, use your finger or a paring knife.
- Till the chocolate becomes firm, let the mixture rest.
