Peanut Butter Chocolate Patties

Using dark chocolate and organic peanut butter makes this a healthier choice rather than the store bought peanut butter cups.

Makes about 8-10 patties

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter), I used Field Day Organic Peanut Butter
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar (you may need more or less depending on the consistency of your peanut butter)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, melted (I used dark chocolate)

Directions

  1. Mix the first three ingredients together in a bowl. If the peanut butter is to hard to stir toss it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften.  
  2. Add powder sugar 2 teaspoons at a time until it forms a dough. Form dough into little patties and freeze for about an hour.  
  3. Remove patties from freezer and dip into the melted chocolate. This is a little messy, but sooo worth it. Put the patties back in the freezer until chocolate is set. About 15 minutes, if you can wait that long to try one.  
  4. Store in the freezer or fridge in a air tight container.

Enjoy!
