Two of the five ingredients in these energy bites are my go-to binge combo. Any recipe with peanut butter and chocolate is an automatic pin. I hope you feel the same way about these peanut butter and chocolate bites.
I started to call them energy balls, but I had flashbacks to Alec Baldwin on SNL’s. The skit where he was a guest on Delicious Dish to share his famous Schweddy Balls recipe from his holiday bakery, Seasons Eatings.
So in an attempt to reign in my daily dessert habit during Quaranspring, I wanted to share these peanut butter and chocolate bites.
There are so many great things about these bitty bites:
- 5 ingredients
- no baking involved
- no technical prep
- shelf-stable ingredients
And, as if the combo of peanut butter and chocolate was not enough to get you; the five ingredients might! That’s it five ingredients and if I have the ingredients in my pantry you probably do too! I love coconut. I used sweetened but the recipe suggested unsweetened. Is there such a thing? #wink
And chocolate chips. The recipe called for mini chocolate chips, but I did not want to make a run to Kroger for mini morsels. However, looking back, I could have bought the unsweetened coconut with my mini morsel purchase. Does anyone else edit recipes like I do?
It drives my sister and daughter crazy!
I love these little chocolate peanut butter bites right around 2pmish when I get a little hangry for something sweet.
