Halloween Candy

Dear Diary,

Last halloween, we shared this recipe on LaurenConrad.com… but since it’s one of our favorite halloween treats, we decided to share it again with our readers this year.  Hey, a favorite is always a favorite right?!  Halloween is a bittersweet time for us SFGs… While we love the creativity the holiday inspires; we secretly fear how accessible candy bars, caramel corn and gummy worms become.  Even a recent trip to the doctor’s office tested my resolve with a bowl of Tootsie Rolls. Don’t get us wrong, we love to indulge, but we don’t have the self-control to say no to sweets. This feels like an “us” issue, but we have a feeling we aren’t alone…

So we came up with a solution to satisfy our sweet tooth, but without all the guilt.  We used ingredients that you can pronounce which makes such a difference in satisfying your cravings.

Peanut Butter Snitches

Peanut Butter Chocolate Homemade Treat

 Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2/3 cup vanilla protein powder, preferably vegan
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 ½ cups reduced fat creamy peanut butter
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 ¼ cups Fiber One cereal
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate (70% cacao) chopped

Healthy Homemade Halloween Candy

Instructions:

  1. Add the first six ingredients together in a food processer. You may have to melt the coconut oil in the microwave to give it a liquid consistency for about 45 seconds. If you don’t have a food processor an electric mixer will work as well, but it won’t be as smooth.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape the peanut butter mixture into small balls; you should have enough for about 20. Place the balls on the baking sheet and place in the freezer for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, pull them out of the freezer and reshape in your hands, then place back in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  3. Place chopped chocolate into the microwave for about 45 seconds, take out, and stir, place back into the microwave for another 45 seconds, repeat until chocolate is completely melted.
  4. Remove the peanut butter balls from the freezer. Using a fork, dip the balls into the chocolate. Feel free to cover them with as much chocolate as you want. Place the chocolate balls back in the freezer for 15 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens. Serve and eat immediately.
