SunButter Halloween Pops
Today is the first Monday in October and that means that Halloween is right around the corner. And Halloween is horrible for kids (and adults) with peanut allergies! Well, I have a peanut free (can be made dairy free), grain free, soy free tasty treat for everyone to enjoy. And it is super easy so kids can help, too! S washed her hands and helped! The recipe is so easy – it can be changed up for every holiday with the different sprinkles.
1/2 cup Creamy SunButter
3 TBSP salted butter OR coconut butter if keeping recipe dairy free (melted)
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup of candy chocolate melts (you can use chocolate chips or baking chocolate)
Sprinkles (in the holiday colors)
1. Place 1/2 cup SunButter into a large mixing bowl, add in butter and mix well.
2. Add in the powdered sugar in small increments so that if forms a dough. You don’t want the “dough” to be sticky at all. You may need to add more powdered sugar at this stage.
6. Melt the chocolate according to package directions. Mine required about 60 seconds and then a stir right after to make it smooth.
7. I started out dipping with the toothpick and then just started dumping the balls into the chocolate and then fishing them out with a fork. Then I found that rather than rolling the balls in the sprinkles, it worked better to sprinkle the sprinkles on top of the balls to get even coverage.
My kids declared these even better than those mass marketed peanut butter cups out there! And I loved them too, of course, and tried to steal a handful! This is a super tasty and super easy recipe you can make with your kids. You can change up the colors to match whatever holiday, party or occasion! Good stuff!
