Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

Well, it’s been awhile again! I don’t have much of an excuse for not posting more often, other than school started up again, my dog begs for food every time I take pictures of it, I haven’t been baking quite as much due to the hot weather, and oh yeah, I’m just lazy sometimes. I have a treat to make up for it though!Healthy Peanut Butter BallsI’ve made these healthy treats so many times over the years. I store them in my freezer and grab one (or two) whenever I’m suddenly starving but dinner is 2 hours away. You know those peanut butter balls called Buckeyes that are made with tons of butter and powdered sugar? These taste even better than those and are so much healthier!Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

On The Go Oatmeal Cups

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Fudgy, chewy, double chocolate cookies filled with peanut butter chips. They'll disappear as quickly as you can make them!

I’ve always been a fan of chocolate and peanut butter. Reese’s are a bit too sweet for me, but I love making peanut butter cups myself! I just take a cupcake liner and fill it partway with dark chocolate, add a layer of peanut butter, and then top it with more chocolate. I leave them in the freezer for the perfect summer snack- there ya go, two recipes in one post. Not bad, right?

Reese’s Brownies

Reese's Cup Brownies- fudgy, thick brownies satisfy every chocolate craving!

My sister, Amy, bought me a bunch of Easter candy. I immediately planned on using it for baking some treats, but it took awhile to get around to. Michael loved these brownies the first time I made them, and I thought that the addition of chopped Reese’s peanut butter eggs would make them even better. It worked! The slight salty flavor of Reese’s went perfectly with the thick, sweet brownies. You could also just chop up some Reese’s cups and get the same results!
