Reese’s Peanut Butter & Chocolate Energy Bites
Where has the year gone? I can not believe that the Holiday season is upon us, which of course means crazy schedules, family get togethers and running around to find that elusive “perfect gift” for that not so easy to shop for relative. I do not know about you, but just thinking about it makes me tired. It is usually around 3pm or so that my energy starts to lag and my stomach starts to growl, most of the time because I forget to eat lunch. So I love having snacks in the house that I can grab to give me that extra little boost to get me through the rest of the day. These Reese’s Peanut Butter & Chocolate Energy Bites do just the trick. Just one or two and they fill me up and hold me over until dinner time and give me that extra little kick to get me through the rest of the day. When I learned on #CollectiveBias that Reese’s started making a chocolate AND peanut butter spread, I knew that I had to get my hands on it! So off to Walmart I went to hunt down this little jar of goodness. Thankfully I did not have to run around the store like a crazed loon and was able to find right in the peanut butter isle, nestled comfortability on the shelf, waiting for me. If you want to try out this amazing new spread you can head over HERE and see if the in store demo happening November 13th-17th is happening in your area. That way you can get an idea of just how magical this stuff really is. These Reese’s Peanut Butter & Chocolate Energy Bites are not only super yummy, they are super easy to make. I mean no baking involved easy! All you need is a few ingredients and a blender or food processor to make them! Simply grab up all of your ingredients, and any extras you want to add, and place it all in a food processor and pulse until everything is well combined! Simple right? After your ingredients are well combined, simply roll into 1 inch or bite sized balls. Any extras can be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
