Crunchy Speculoos Balls

Recipe and photo by made to create

This simple treat is easy to create, perfect for dessert and snack for kids. Follow recipe below:


11 ounces speculoos cookie butter spread (one 11oz. jar from Trader Joe's)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) Earth Balance vegan butter, softened
1 cup organic powder sugar
2 cups crispy rice cereal
17 ounces dark chocolate, melted for dipping


Begin by combining the Speculoos and the softened butter in a large mixing bowl, stirring well to incorporate. Next, add in the powder sugar and give it a few stirs. Now add in the crispy rice, and using your hands mix everything together. Roll balls using about two tablespoons of the mixture for each ball, and place them on a few large plates, or one large cookie sheet that will fit in your freezer. Freeze the balls for at least 20 minutes. Then melt your chocolate in a glass bowl, either in the microwave or in the stove top using the double boiler method. Roll each frozen ball in the melted chocolate, and place on a plate or cookie sheet lined with foil. I usually use two spoons to twirl the balls in the chocolate to get them fully coated. You could always stick toothpicks in the top of the balls before freezing to make it easier to dunk them in the chocolate. Once you have coated all the balls, place them in the freezer to set for at least another 20 minutes. Then store in an airtight container in either the refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve.
