Helpful Tips for Rolling and Stuffing the Balls

It’s actually very easy to fill and roll up these Jelly SunButter Balls as long as you follow the instructions properly. It’s so easy you could even get your kids involved in this fun project.

The most vital step is refrigerating the SunButter oat mixture. Make sure you refrigerate it until it has firmed up a bit. This will take about 2 hours. If the mixture is too warm you’ll really struggle with stuffing and rolling up the balls.

Another tip, don’t stuff them with too much jelly. You really only need a very small amount (about a 1/4 teaspoon). If you over-stuff them you’ll struggle to roll them closed. But don’t worry if you do end up getting a little bit of jelly on the outside. They will still taste amazing!
