Chocolate Earth Balls

Makes about 30
Time 45 min
Kids love making and eating these chocolate earth balls, a less fancy version of grown-up truffles. The best part? No baking required! From The Whole Foods Market Cookbook.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder or carob powder
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (gluten-free, if desired)
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, etc.)
Method

Mix peanut butter, honey and cocoa in a medium bowl until well combined.

Stir in the raisins and 2 tablespoons of the coconut. Stir in chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Place remaining coconut, sesame seeds and nuts into 3 separate bowls.

Using a spoon, scoop small heaps of the peanut mixture from the bowl; roll into 1 1/4-inch balls.

Rolling is easier if you form a rough ball, roll in coconut, and then continue rolling into a more perfect shape.

Roll each finished ball in more coconut, sesame seeds and chopped nuts.

Arrange the balls on a plate, cover loosely and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
