Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups

I know that is a super long title for what you will find is a super easy recipe.

At my house "treats" are welcome everyday all day.  For my daughter she would love it if I would allow her to have a treat first thing in the morning before she has had a decent breakfast.

To be fair the term treat has a very broad definition at my house.  It could range from granola to Larabar to the cookies and cake.  In this case the treat that I made was Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups in ball form.


1/2-3/4 C peanut butter
2/3 C powdered sugar
6 Tbsp Enjoy Life Mega Chunks

I started out with 1/2 of peanut butter (I prefer smooth but I am sure chunky would just add more texture to the ball) and added my powdered sugar.  As I started to mix the two I found that more peanut butter was needed and added an additional 2 Tbsp.  It was just enough to make the mixutre moist, but not sticky.

Next I poured in my Enjoy Life Mega Chunks. 

Ok I need a quick sidebar here.  For those of you who haven't seen these or haven't sampled these OMG they are delicious.

They look a little different in color then a traditional chocolate chip, but the flavor is immense and the size, well lets just say in this case that size does matter.

Once rolled up I got 12 out of this mixture (I am sure if you like small balls you could make more, but again size matters and I like them big).

I put these to my official taste tester panel

A thumbs up from both boys.  Unfortunately these didn't last long, but that's ok they are so easy to whip up that I can easily make more.

The flavor honestly is just like a certain name branded peanut butter least so says my husband the Reese's cup connoisseur.

“Mmmm, you’ll find tasty recipes like these in the Backpacker Recipe Guide.”
