Death by sugar coma is the real trick on Halloween, y'all. F'reals. I'm not afraid of a little toilet paper in the trees, but I just can't take the sweets on, like I used to. Lucky for me, the following treats are getting shipped off to my nephews. Their birthdays fall on the 28th and 29th of October, and I'm pretty sure they still appreciate a bit of the ol' birthday treat jolts (their parents maybe not so much).
I revamped the Buckeye Balls from Papa Tofu, and I think this is a better recipe. I mean, if peanut butter, chocolate and balls can get any better.

Buckeye AmazeballsMakes 18 1" balls
- 1 cup natural crunchy peanut butter, salted
- 1/2 cup organic powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup gluten-free puffed rice
- 1 cup xgfx chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil
My favorite way to eat Buckeye Amazeballs is straight outta the freezer, since I can't really handle more than one at a time, and I like 'em as crunchy as possible.
After my ball escapades, I had a little bit of melted chocolate leftover, so I decided to make some chocolate mint patties, too. I sorta wung the filling loosely following this MoFo recipe from ¡La Vida Vegana!.

I think these patties are the culprits that sent me over the sugar cliff, so next time I'll play with the recipe a bit more. Delicious, but eeeEEEEEE, not so good for the brains. I think using agave necta', coconut oil and shredded coconut will be a nice change.
