Peanut butter treats

16 Sept 2015

These peanut butter treats are perfect for when you need a quick, easy fix to a bad day. I'm sure we can all agree that, as the summer draws to a close and you realise you've got no annual leave left to take until Christmas, these days are going to become more frequent.

For peanut butter treats, you will need (makes 15): 

3/4 jar smooth peanut butter
1 egg
Half a mug of sugar
Handful of chocolate chips

Put the peanut butter, egg and sugar into a bowl.


Naturally, taste some of the dough.

Take a teaspoon of dough and use your hands to roll into a ball.

Repeat until you've used all your dough. Pop onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Pop in the oven for 8-10 minutes at 180c.

For treat 1:

Using a fork, press down on five of the doughballs to make a criss-cross pattern before cooking.

For treat 2:

When rolling the dough into a ball, roll two or three chocolate chips into the middle of five doughballs.

For treat 3:

Press a chocolate chip on top of five doughballs, once cooked.

Enjoy your peanut butter treats!

This may seem obvious, but these are incredibly peanut buttery! You need to be a huge fan of peanut butter if you're going to embark on this peanut adventure.

Treat 2 may just need a little longer in the oven. In mine, the chocolate chips hadn't quite melted.
