Now, I know that these aren’t healthy but they are very tasty and easy to make when you suddely have to make morning tea for your child’s cricket team, I speak from personal experience here!
I like mixing the sugars up a bit, dark muscovado sugar is a great addition in these, just omit 50g of the brown sugar and add the muscovado instead.
Makes 36 balls.
175g smooth peanut butter
150g macadamia nuts
200g brown sugar
100g caster sugar
100g desiccated coconut plus extra
Melt the butter and peanut butter gently in a pan.
In a food processor, blitz the macadamia nuts until fairly finely chopped.
Add the sugars and coconut to the nuts and blitz again.
Finally pour in the butters and pulse until combined.
Pour some extra coconut onto a plate.
Take small amounts of the nut ball mix and squeeze into a ball, roll in the coconut and set aside. Continue with the remaining mixture.
Once you have finished, pop the balls into the fridge to set.
