No peanut-butter balls
I just had to share this no-peanut butter candy that my daughter made. She substituted sunflower butter or Sunbutter for the peanut butter called for in the recipe. It is a perfect substitution, tastes good and kids are not usually allergic to sunflower seeds.
Here's a link to a recipe and video. So if you need to take something that is lip-smacking good that kids will love for a "no-peanuts allowed zone" Christmas party or event, this is a good thing to make. Just make a substitution. Sunbutter is available in most grocery stores. It is not quite as flavorful as peanut butter but by the time you coat it with chocolate, it is very good. Be sure to get the variety that is the same consistency as regular peanut butter.
