- INGREDIENT SUBSTITUTIONS
- Peanut Butter - You can use almond butter if you'd prefer.
- Cocoa Powder - You can use cacao powder if you'd prefer.
- Rice Malt / Brown Rice Syrup - You can use honey or maple syrup if you'd prefer.
- COOK'S TIPS
- You need drippy peanut butter to act as a binder in the mixture. If your peanut butter isn't drippy, melt it in the microwave or soften in a saucepan over the stove.
- Wet your hands a little before rolling the balls to stop the mixture sticking to your hands.
- You can easily turn this into a slice by placing the mixture in a square cake tin and cutting into squares after it sets.
- You could also pop the mixture into little cupcake cases like the originals.
