It's been a LONG time since I've shared a recipe on here. Honestly, it's been awhile since I felt like baking anything because working from home has kept me so busy and I no longer have coworkers to take treats into.
Slowly but surely I've gotten back into the kitchen. This week has been super stressful so I've found myself baking more than usual. I don't know what it is about baking, but it's such a good way to relax.
With the summer heat the last thing I want to do is turn on my oven. Instead of baking, I've been testing out no bake recipes. This one has been a winner with my hubs and our neighbors. It's quick, easy, it's a great one to involve the kids on, and best of all you can keep your ovens off!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 3 Tablespoons butter (I used plant butter and it works just as well as dairy butter)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 4 oz bakers chocolate
In a mixing bowl using an electric mixer combine peanut butter and butter until smooth.
Add in powdered sugar to peanut butter/butter combo and mix until combined.
Next, using your hands roll the mixture into balls and place on a plate. Depending on the size of your balls you will get between 10-15 balls.
Place plate with peanut butter bites in freezer for 15-20 minutes until firm.
When you take peanut butter balls out of freezer, put 4 ounces of bakers chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and heat up in 30 second intervals until melted. Depending on the strength of your microwave it will take between 1-2 minutes.
Once chocolate is melted coat one peanut butter bite at a time until all have been covered in chocolate.
Place chocolate covered peanut butter bites in freezer again for 15-20 minutes until the chocolate has hardened, then dig in!
Store chocolate peanut butter bites in fridge for up to a week.
If you make them tag me in your photos on instagram @rachael_miner, I can't wait to see your creations!
