Scary Halloween Monster Energy Balls

    No-bake peanut butter balls

    • 3/4 cup peanuts
    • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (vegan)
    • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
    • 1/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats


    • Pulse the pitted dates in a food processor for a couple of minutes until they form a smooth paste.
    • Add oats, cocoa powder, peanut butter, peanuts, and mix. If the mix is a bit dry, add a couple of tablespoons of water to make it a bit stickier (for tips and trick, read the full recipe here).
    • Use your hands to roll into 1-inch balls.
    • While the balls are still soft and sticky, press two candy eyeballs into each ball.
    • Cut the licorice bars into thin strips. Cut the bats wings using round cutters, and the spider legs (6 per spider) using a knife.
    • Press into the cookie ball. If the licorice is too soft, you can use a toothpick to make a small hole in the balls before pressing the wings or legs.
    • Place the scary monsters balls into the fridge to firm up for about 15-30 minutes.
