1/2cup"safe" margarine, softenedsuch as Earth Balance
2 - 1/2cupspowdered sugar
For Dipping Chocolate:
1-1/2cups"safe" semi sweet chocolate chipssuch as Enjoy Life
1-1/2tablespoonscoconut oil or "safe" margarine
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sunflower butter, margarine, vanilla extract and powdered sugar (dough will be dry). Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop dough and roll into 1 inch balls. Place onto cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Insert a toothpick into the top of each ball (this is for dipping the ball into chocolate later). Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours until firm.
Pour the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small bowl. Microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth.
Remove the sunflower butter balls from the freezer and, using the toothpick, dip each one in the chocolate leaving the top uncovered (to look like a buckeye). Return to the refrigerator until ready to serve.
