Buckeyes - safe for peanut, tree nut, gluten, egg, and dairy allergies

1 jar of Sunbutter
3 cups of safe powdered sugar
1/2 cup dairy free margarine
1 bag of Enjoy Life chocolate chips
2 Tbs. shortening

In a medium bowl mix the entire jar of Sunbutter, the margarine, and the powdered sugar together. Line baking sheets with wax paper. Roll Sunbutter/sugar mixture into 1/2 - 1 inch balls and place on wax paper lined sheet. Place in refrigerator. Put Enjoy Life chocolate chips and shortening in a bowl and put in the microwave for 30 second intervals and mix in between each interval. Only go until chocolate chips are completely melted (approx. 4 - 30 second intervals).
Dip Sunbutter balls into melted chocolate and stick a toothpick in the middle of the ball to remove. Place back on cookie sheet. When finished place chocolate coated balls back in refrigerator until chocolate is set.

Thank you for your blog, I just found it, I have a gluten allergy and have been trying to find recipes I could make myself!!!

What a great holiday treat! My mom used to make the peanut butter kind when I was little. Now my son can enjoy these treats, too. And my vegan sister-in-law!

Do you recommend using the regular Sunbutter or the organic?

ChupieandJ'smama said...

Jenn, I usually use the organic, but this time I used the regular so either is fine. My preference is the organic though.

Happy Holidays!
