Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Here comes Peter cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail!!

Who doesn’t love all of the pastel colored isles at the grocery store this time of the year?!?  Peeps, chocolate bunnies, chocolate covered eggs, jelly beans…I think you know what I’m talking about. LOL!

Thank goodness eating a vegan diet SAVES me from those isles!!   However, there are days that I crave something sweet and oh so bad for me! I use to LOVE Reese Peanut Butter eggs this time of the year and have really missed them.  Nothing like peanut butter and chocolate together.  Pure sugar heaven!

Who knew they were actually SO easy to make at home?  Are they healthy? Heck no! LOL!

I was excited that my non-vegan teenage son LOVED them and said they were amazing, figured that’s a GREAT review and had to share here on kate & kale!

Dairy Free Chocolate Chips

If you have never bought dairy free chocolate chips you can now find them at most grocery stores in the gluten free section.  I love the Enjoy Life brand, they come in lots of different options.  For this recipe I went with the Dark Chocolate, but you could use any dairy free chips.

These bake really well and melt great too!  Just remember when melting you need to work fast before it starts to set back up!
