What are you doing this holiday season with your kid? Do you enjoy cooking with easy recipes?
If the answer to the above questions is YES then here is a festive recipe that you might want to devour.
Creamy, sweet peanut butter filling covered with a thin layer of chocolate. This is a simple recipe which can be enjoyed by both parents and kids. The best past is that it involves no oven or a cook-top!
Kids of any age can enjoy making these as it involves two of their favourite things peanuts and chocolate. Peanut butter is a healthy snacking option for kids albeit the coating of chocolate makes it so much more fun :). So go ahead and indulge your loved ones in some fun cooking this Christmas!
250gm i2cook peanut butter – you can buy it here
2tbs utmt honey
4tbs raisins (optional)
200gm of Dark chocolate compound (in room temperature)
In a large bowl, whisk together peanut butter, honey & raisins until smooth. Taste the sweetness, you can add more honey if you like yours sweeter but remember, the chocolate is sweet as well. Dig in with your (clean) hands and take in a tablespoon of the mixture in your hand and roll into small balls. Place the balls on a parchment lined baking sheet. Once you are done rolling all, place them in the fridge to chill for about 2 hours.
In a small but deep bowl, microwave the chocolate for 30 seconds intervals, stirring well until smooth. Using a fork, dip each ball into the chocolate, tap off the excess and set it back on the parchment. Repeat the same for all the peanut butter balls. Place them back in the fridge to set completely for a few hours, about 6 hours or overnight.
Makes about 15 small-sized nibbles. Store in an air tight container, refrigerated. They work great as Christmas gifts too!
I would love to hear your fun stories. Have a great holiday and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
