Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Chocolate peanut butter bites are a perfect bite-size dessert combining peanut butter cookie dough with a fudge filled center.

Chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favorite combos (tied with mint and chocolate!). In a pinch, during a raging sweet tooth, I’ve been known to dip a spoonful of chocolate chips into the peanut butter jar.  The other day, I needed to make treats to take to work as a thank you after a big project launch. I’ve made these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites from Recipe.com before and they’re pretty easy, cute and most of all cure the chocolate peanut butter craving!

I’ve modified the recipe slightly after a few times of making these, but not much. Makes 36.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • Cooking spray

Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray, heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut cookie dough roll in half and put half in the refrigerator while you work with the other half. Slice the half roll into 4 equal slices. Then slice each into quarters. Place each cookie dough piece in the bottom of a mini muffin cup. Repeat with the other half of the cookie dough. I have only one mini-muffin pan, so I have to bake the first batch, wait for cooling and then bake the second batch.

Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Edges will be just slightly brown. Remove from oven and use a 1/2 teaspoon baking spoon to gently push down the centers and make your “cup”.

Place back into the oven for about 1-2 minutes. Let cool for at least 15 minutes and then use a spoon at the edge of the muffin tin to pop your shells.

Over medium heat melt your chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk together. This should take just a few minutes. Spoon your chocolate fudge into your cups.

Let cool. Pop them in your mouth and eat. So good! My team is lucky these made it into the office. My husband and I polished off the ones that were less than perfect. 🙂
