Salted Nut Roll Bites

Salted Nut Roll Bites

These simple Salted Nut Roll Bites go together in just minutes!

I don’t impress my husband very often with the things that I make.

Not that he’s rude about it, per se… just not overly enthusiastic.


Enthusiasm isn’t an emotion my husband knows well.  We’ve had many discussions about this.

He’s more even tempered…ALL THE TIME…while I’m more cartwheels and squeals.

It’s just our way.

I am excitable and he..isn’t.


So when I get something more than a, “It’s good”, with a head nod, I deem a recipe a success.

In today’s case I got a “They’re good!”.

See the difference there?

Let’s go over that again:





Subtle, yet effective, I suppose.


Anyhow, I knew he would love these.

He’s not a huge chocolate guy, but likes peanuts and the salty/sweet…


These are perfect for lunch snacks, candy trays or even dessert.

You can honestly have these made in 10 minutes.. no chilling time required…LOVE a quick treat!

I actually found this recipe on Tablespoon, and it was written by the sweet Real Mom Kitchen.  I only made a few small alterations to the recipe..these little bites are too good not to share!


In a bowl combine peanut butter, honey, some chopped Honey Roasted peanuts, a splash of vanilla and a cup of nonfat dry milk…

If you wanted them to be even sweeter (they don’t need it), you could add in powdered sugar instead of the dry milk.


Stir that up.. it will become like a thick cookie dough.

Then portion is out in approximate tablespoon sized portions and flatten them out…

Grab some mini marshmallows…

And just wrap the peanut butter mixture around it.


Now use the rest of your chopped nuts and roll each ball until coated.

And boom, they’re ready to eat!

Love an instant snack!

  1. I wish I could send these in my kids lunches. Sadly, anything that causes allergies is banned especially nuts. It sucks! Can’t wait to make these with a mini Hershey’s kiss inside! I’m not a massive fan of the mallow. Gasp! I know…

  2. I am married to your husband’s twin! Thankful I an not married to another “me.” Holy sassy molasses – what a train wreck that would be. No room for two cartwhwwlers! Hahahaha! Can’t wait to try this πŸ™‚

    Wow, your husband and mine must have been separated at birth! When I make something new, I ask my husband do you like it? I get, it’s good. What does that mean? So now, I ask, would you eat this again? Then I will get a yes or no. Of course, I get mad, cause I think it’s GREAT. Then he get’s grilled on what he liked and didn’t like about the dish. And also, he’s not a big chocolate fan which drives me crazy when we go out to eat cause sharing dessert is never an option. Wait, why would that be a problem! BTW, these look amazing! Sorry for the long comment!

  4. “Not that he’s rude about it, per se… just not overly enthusiastic.” — Oh wow, mine and yours could be BFFs. I also think that as bloggers, cookbook writers, etc that they become totally immune to what we make and it all blends together for them. If only they were without it for awhile and were forced to eat storebought stale cookies, they may come around and be a bit more …enthusiastic! Lol

    I love the Pb/honey/drymilk combo. In my book (I know you have it) there’s a recipe for PB honey balls (in the no-bake chapter) that is similar to these! I never thought to stuff them with marshmallows…great idea!

    Glad that Chris got on board with this one, but for sure to say “how could he not” these looks like a Saturday morning “knock out”

  6. Haha – I will send treats to work with my husband quite often, and when I ask him what people say about the food, he always just says that they liked it. I guess he doesn’t understand that I really need to know – they just don’t get it!! πŸ™‚ These sound amazing, and I need them in my life!

    Thank you for this recipe. This is my hidden treat. Since peanuts are hard for me to digest, I used almond butter and almonds! NOW, I’m thinking of this as a delicious means of taking my flax seed.

  8. There’s “you’re funny”. and then….there’s “you’re FUNNY!!” YEP! YOU got that. Great blog. I can relate. MY husband claims that I wait expectantly…for the standing ovation, LOLOLOL where I just see it as special recognition. πŸ™‚ He actually cooks as well so it is not that easy to impress him so much as to elicit helpful advice, heheee…. I deal with it. So, the “its good!!” really means something. I do think I am excited about making these. THANKS!!!

        Thanks for the feed back. I was thinking the marshmallow cream would give it more of the nougat like filling. Is there anything else you think might work?
