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.
Salted Nut Roll Bites.
You can honestly have these made in 10 minutes.. no chilling time required…LOVE a quick treat!
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!
Salty, sweet with a chewy center… So yummy!
