Hurray, I am finally sharing my first recipe with you! First I wanted to wait until… yeah, until when? I guess until my food photography skills have improved by 1,000% which will take a while. Since it’s weekend and one actually has time for making something nice now, I thought it would be a good opportunity to get this over to you. So I will take the photography part as learning by doing, since it would be cruel to keep delicious recipes from you just because they don’t look as delicious on my photos as in reality. Just try for yourselves and you’ll see the real beauty of these little darlings! ❤
I’m a total peanut butter addict. It became “worse” when I went vegan, so there must be something about peanuts that perfectly complements a vegan diet. At least I have the impression that every vegan food blogger I know goes crazy for peanut butter too! 😉
Peanut butter + chocolate = cloud nine!
These home-made chocolates are not only much healthier than any store-bought chocolate creation, they also taste better. But try for yourselves… 🙂
For about 20 crunchy peanut butter chocolate bliss balls:
100 g crunchy peanut butter
10 g cacao nibs
20 g agave syrup
200 g dark chocolate (~ 70%)
some crumbled cornflakes
Combine peanut butter, cacao nibs and agave and carefully melt the dark chocolate in a waterbath. When its all melted, pour 25 g of the chocolate into the peanut butter mixture and stir it in immediately. This mousse now goes to the fridge for a while until it starts firming up. Keep the melted chocolate at temperature in the meantime. Form around 20 little balls out of the dough and place them in the freezer for maybe 15 min until they are relatively hard. Dip into the melted chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off, roll in the crumbled cornflakes and place on parchment paper. Not done yet: Put the balls into the fridge until the chocolate is hardened and then dip them into the melted chocolate once again. This will preserve the crunchiness of the cornflakes. You can decorate with some more crumbled cornflakes or cacao nibs.
I would recommend to store the balls in the fridge as the consistency and crunchiness is best when cooled.
What’s left to say? Enjoy and try to make them last for longer than a few minute – I highly recommend hiding. They are just too good to resist. 🙂
Have a great Sunday!
