How To Make Easy Chocolate/Peanut Butter Treats

Easy, Fast and Yummy Treats

This recipe is so quick and easy I have made it in the morning to take to work as a treat and it goes quickly.  If you like chocolate and peanut butter, you will not be able to eat just one.  They taste a bit like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Step 1

Gather your ingredients.  They are:

  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon baking cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons creamy style peanut butter
  • Waxed paper

Step 2

Melt the butter in a small pan and remove from heat.

Step 3

Stir in the cocoa powder well, then stir in the powdered sugar.

Step 4

Add the milk and blend to  a smooth consistency.

Step 5

Add peanut butter and blend until well distributed.

Step 6

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Flatten tops sligjtly.  This should result in small (about 1") "buttons".  You may cool for a few minutes to help them set up.  You are finished!  Makes about 1 to 1-1/2 dozen depending on size.

When my grand-children are over, this is a simple way to keep them busy and I have been told by them that "this is the best treat ever".  Can't get a better compliment than that!
