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.

Totally simple.

And boom, they’re ready to eat!

Love an instant snack!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

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

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?

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. 🙂 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!!!

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.

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

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

Oct 25, 2013 3:09 am

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!! 🙂 These sound amazing, and I need them in my life!

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”

OMG these sound SO good! I love a good PB and marshmallow fix 🙂

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

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 🙂

Oct 19, 2013 12:48 am

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

Oct 18, 2013 9:54 pm

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!
