How to make No Bake Peanut Butter Brownie Bites:

  1. Heat treat the brownie mix: this is to ensure that no one gets sick from eating raw flour which is in the brownie mix. You can either heat treat in the microwave or in the oven. Either way the brownie mix needs to reach an internal temperature of 165℉. 
  2. Mix in the peanut butter: this will make a super dry dough. 
  3. Add milk as desired. 1/3-1/2 cup will be needed to get the dough to a consistency that will stick together when rolled. 
  4. Scoop & roll. Use a small cookie trigger scoop to help make all the brownie bites the same size. The dough may seem dry at this point still, but working with it in your hands warms the peanut butter to help the dough stick together nicely when rolled into a ball. 
  5. Chill: these no bake brownie bites are best served cold. I love storing them in a sealed container in the fridge and enjoying whenever!

How to Store these no bake brownie bites:

After rolling into balls, the brownie bites can be stacked into a container. Keep them covered or in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5-7 days. 

 The best way to enjoy these..cold.  I love to eat them right out of the refrigerator.  A friend of mine from church shared with me that she makes them and keeps them in the freezer and just snacks on them straight from there!

Possible variations:

  • Using another nut butter: changing the peanut butter to another type of nut butter, like almond butter, will definitely change the texture of the end result. I would recommend using a smooth, creamy nut butter to help make it easier to mix in. 
  • Milk options: you can use any milk you prefer (coconut or almond milk are great options) this is to help make the dough not so dry and gives the ability to roll the dough into a ball shape.
