I took these to work one busy Saturday and everyone gobbled them up. I was calling them Salted Peanut Butter Banana Truffles, but that's a lot of words for some awesome lil balls, and this is more fun!

How to Make Salted Monkey Balls

Step-by-Step

  • 1in stand mixer, blend bananas and peanut butter. Add powdered sugar. Mix well. It will still be kinda sticky
  • 2Using a small (1oz) cookie scoop, scoop balls 1 in apart onto parchment lined cookie sheets that fit in your freezer. Balls will spread slightly. Freeze for 2-3 hrs
  • 3Reshape balls by rolling between your palms. Replace onto parchment/cookie sheets, return to freezer for 24 hrs
  • 4BALLS MUST BE COMPLETELY FROZEN BEFORE DIPPING! IF NOT, THEY'LL MELT IN THE CHOCOLATE AND LEAVE BITS, RUINING THE SMOOTH FINISH OF THE CHOCOLATE!
  • 5Melt chocolate in double boiler.
  • 6WORK QUICKLY AND IN SMALL BATCHES, LEAVING MOST BALLS IN THE FREEZER TIL READY FOR THEM
  • 7Use a toothpick to gently pick one ball and dip into chocolate, using a spoon to cover top. Gently jiggle the ball to assist excess chocolate to drip off. (too much, and it'll pool below the ball) Place on another parchment/cookie sheet. Sprinkle a small amount of kosher salt. Leave the toothpick in while you dip/sprinkle the next ball
  • 8Back to the ball before, gently twist the toothpick out. With clean end of toothpick (or fresh one) take a small dab of melted chocolate and seal the hole. Sprinkle more salt if you like
  • 9*IF YOU DONT SEAL IT, THE FILLING WILL "WORM" ITS WAY OUT!
  • 10Repeat steps 7-8 til all balls are coated
  • 11Once the chocolate is set, transfer balls into sealable container. Place in fridge for 2-3 hrs
