My eating habits (for better or worse) are quite well known to Water Cooler followers, so it won’t come as a surprise that I’ve found yet-another ‘healthy’ sweet treat. A Buzzfeed list promised “14 Delicious Desserts You Can Make With Four Ingredients Or Fewer . Easy and delicious? Sold! I made a couple of slight adjustments to the recipe found here – Cheree Morrison

 

RECIPE: PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE BITES

INGREDIENTS

1 cup peanut butter*
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons of coconut flour (found in the cooking section of the supermarket for $5, so not as outrageous as expected)
200g 82% dark chocolate (this is hit and miss depending how much chocolate you want to cover with, I had some left over)
Sea salt for sprinkling on top

METHOD

In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, honey and half of the coconut flour. The peanut butter mixture should be a little sticky, keep adding the coconut flour until happy.

Shape into round balls or flat discs depending on preference and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Pop in the freezer for 20 minutes.

After the 20 minutes, place a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and melt chocolate. Transfer to a small bowl and quickly dip the peanut butter mixture into the chocolate, coating evenly. This can be slightly awkward as the chocolate will set quickly so best get fingers in there to ensure even and quick results. Place them back onto the baking paper and sprinkle the salt on top (quick – before the chocolate hardens). Place back in the freezer for another 30 minutes, or as long as you can last before tucking in. Store in the freezer in an airtight container. Quantity will depend on personal size preference, mine were the size of milk bottle top, and this made around 25 treats.

Sweet, salty and yum.

*One cup homemade peanut butter (I put roasted peanuts with a sprinkle of salt in my Vitamix to make my own peanut butter – it’s magic. Pics Peanut Butter, or any natural offerings with only peanuts and salt on the ingredient list, also works well)
