Ingredients

No-bake peanut butter balls

  • 3/4 cup (95g) peanuts
  • 1 cup (200g) medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (vegan)
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup (30g) gluten-free rolled oats

Decorations

  • 4 Licorice bars
  • 32 Candy eyeballs

Instructions

  • Pulse the pitted dates in a food processor or blender 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.
