Vegan Buckeyes (Peanut Butter Chocolate-Dipped Balls)

1 cup natural peanut butter (no salt, oil, or sugar added)
1 ¼ cups Naked PB Powder
3 T maple syrup
2-3 T non-dairy milk
1 cup of vegan chocolate chips
2 t coconut oil (added to make the chocolate smooth enough to dip the balls)

Mix peanut butter, PB powder, maple syrup, and 2 T non-dairy milk together in a bowl to create a dough. Add more non-dairy milk if needed to make the dough soft but still enough to hold a ball shape. Use small cookie scoop to scoop portions of the dough into balls, roll in clean hands until a smooth ball is created and place on parchment or waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Place balls in freezer until firm.

Just before taking the balls out of the freezer, warm chocolate chips and oil in small microwave-safe bowl in the microwave on the melting chocolate setting or on 70% for about 2 minutes. Stir to see if chips are melted. Put into microwave for 30-45 seconds if needed.

Take a toothpick and put it into a frozen peanut butter ball. Dip half of the ball into the melted chocolate and place back on parchment or waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Do this for each ball. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
