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.Β  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.Β  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…

Salted Nut Roll Bites

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.

Totally simple.

And boom, they’re ready to eat!

Love an instant snack!

Belinda @themoonblushbaker

I am in love with how simple these balls are! Salty sweet and chewy. Loving it


These sound terrific. Loved your homemade Paydays, and these seem even easier πŸ™‚ Think I’ll swap out the marshmallow for chocolate – or maybe a Rolo!

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

I also thought of swapping the marshmallow for chocolate! Yummm

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

I am definitely excitable as well. It bums me out when someone isn’t even slightly as excited about something as I am. Makes me feel like I’m a spazz haha. And yes these excite me.

Laura @ Lauras Baking Talent

Love the idea of putting the marshmallow in the middle. These look great πŸ™‚

Emily @ Life on Food

These are my dad’s favorite candy bar. He would love these homemade treats. Next time we are together I will have to make some. Of course he better share!

Lori Connors

Yum! Going to make with a Rolo in the middle!

Preppy Pink Crocodile

Mmmm- these look amazing! Can’t wait to try them this holiday season.

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…

Sarah @ Miss Candiquik

Ahh, I love these!! Your husband’s reactions remind me of a couple people I know, lol. Pinning πŸ™‚


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™‚

Katrina @ WVS

Fun! I love snacks like this!

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… Read more »

“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… Read more »

Is it ok to chill these or store this in the fridge?

Meg @ The Housewife in Training Files

Yes! One of my all time favorite flavors marry together into a perfect homemade treat! You are my new best friend πŸ™‚ Plussss they are essentially a non-bakers dream! Like me!


Yum! Sweet and salty all rolled into one! I love it!

Sommer @ ASpicyPerspective

Oh, man! These look fantastic! Great gift idea, too!


These look so good! I love sweet and salty

Oh and ,y family is the same way as your husband. Not excitement. it is such a bummer sometimes!


What is it about boys and not getting crazy exciting about food! It makes no sense. I’m practically doing cartwheels over here just thinking about these!

Coco in the Kitchen

Omg Payday truffles!
Maybe a salty peanut in the center?

Jennifer | Bake or Break

These remind me of the pecan logs I used to see in the South. Great for the holidays!

Alexe @ Keys to the Cucina

These look so simple and delicious, love the cute little marshmallow surprise in the middle too!


I would have a hard time controlling myself with these baby paydays around!!

Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

Are you sure our husbands aren’t the same person? Except mine never even eats anything and when he does he says “good. too sweet” ??!!!

These? Are awesome! Pinned!


Ummm- yum!! Great idea! Can’t wait to make them.

holly ; the hobbit kitchen

hahah, i think that unfortunately we have to take whatever compliments we can get when it comes to the men in our lives! these look gorgeous though, i’m glad they were sufficiently appreciated πŸ™‚

Brenda @ a farmgirl

Oh my goodness, how awesome are these?! I need to make these for my dad, he’s the king of salted nut rolls!

Melissa @ Treats With a Twist

OMG these sound SO good! I love a good PB and marshmallow fix πŸ™‚

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”


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!


Haha, he`s probably used to all your delicious treats. But, we could always use more! πŸ˜› Love these. Plus, they`re adorable.

KayleneP @ The Links Site

Wow these look great – love the salty outside with a soft sweet centre!


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.


do they have to be refrigerated and can you freeze them .

Maureen Anderson

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!!!


I wonder if a dollop of marshmallow cream would work in place if the mini marshmallows. Anyone?
