Peanut Free Buckeyes

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups Creamy SunButter

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

4 cups powdered (confectioners’) sugar

6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 Tbsp. shortening

Directions

Line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper; set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix SunButter, butter, vanilla and confectioners’ sugar with hands to form a smooth stiff dough. Shape into balls, using 2 teaspoons dough for each ball.  Place on prepared pan, and refrigerate or freeze.

Melt shortening and chocolate together in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth, and remove from heat.

Remove balls from refrigerator or freezer. Insert a wooden toothpick or skewer into a ball and dip into melted chocolate, leaving a small circle at the top uncoated. Return to wax paper, chocolate side down, and remove toothpick.  Repeat with remaining balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
