PEANUT BUTTER + COCONUT + CHOCOLATE = HEAVEN.
These flavours when combined together are GOLD. You really can’t go wrong, unless you don’t like peanut butter, and if that’s your deal… I don’t really know where to start. Basically, you need these Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls in your life.
But MOVING ON.
I take these Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls everywhere I go. They are so easy to throw in a container and pull out of your bag when you feel the itching pulls of a hangry tantrum coming on.
Addie knows that he needs to constantly have snacks in his pockets when we are out and about as I do find I need to eat quite often throughout the day- so these truly have saved the day more than a handful of times! These are clearly PICKY HUSBAND APPROVED mainly because they keep me sane, but Adam’s also been known to sneak these bites a time or two for himself.
I hope you enjoy these bites! And they save you from any hangry meltdowns.
