If you have been following me for a while you know I have a serious obsession with Elemental Superfood bars. Through these I also discovered a deep love for dried mulberries – the crunchy, chewy sweetness is just so satisfying! I use them in grain free granola, oatmeal, yogurt, and eat them on their own, so when I was playing around with homemade chocolate balls it was only natural that I added these little bites of heaven.
I noticed something upon first bite: peanut butter, mulberry and chocolate combined kind of tastes like a Butterfinger. I mean, don’t expect it to taste exactly like one but the flavor is definitely there. Fortuitously, these Butterfingerish chocolate balls were born.
There are so many ways to do this recipe so I want to emphasize that it all comes down to personal preference and how much effort you want to put into it. If you want a smoother, more consistent Butterfinger taste for the filling, break out the Vitamix or food processor. If you want your chocolate to keep outside of the fridge, temper it. If you want more sweetness or less sugar, use a different liquid sweetener. If you want full fat, use actual peanut butter rather than PB2. If you like coconut, sprinkle some on top. Like all of my recipes, this is a great base for you to experiment with and get creative. Anyway without further ado, Butterfingerish Chocolate Balls!
