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.

  1. These are so delicious and easy!! It was so hard not to eat one for every ball that was rolled…. how do we feel about freezing these?

    1. Hi Samantha!! I’m so glad you enjoyed! These actually freeze really well! And I have a friend who just keeps these in the freezer and eats them straight from there. She loves it!

  2. My 11 year old just made these. They were easy to prepare and so yummy. We’re going to try a vegan version. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    1. So fun Faye! Definitely let me know how your vegan version works out and leave it in the comments for others to know also 🙂

    2. I am Lactose Intolerant so I substituted the milk in for water.
      I ended up having to add another tablespoon of water to form the dough. Other then that they turned out perfectly.
      A new go to snack during the summer when I’m craving chocolate.

    1. If they’re dry try adding just a little more milk. They should hold form when you roll them. Too much milk will make them sticky though. Best of luck! xo

  3. I made these little jewels last week, and they were a hit! I sprinkled a little confectioner’s sugar over them to make them look pretty. They are wonderful and so addicting! Keep them in the fridge and pop one in your mouth whenever the desire hits. They lasted about 5 days at my house, and I do believe the flavor intensified with age. So easy, so quick, so delicious!

    1. Thanks so much Brenda!! I’m so happy you enjoyed them 🙂 They are best right out of the fridge I agree. I’ll have to give the confectioner’s sugar a try next time. I actually have some in my fridge now!

  4. I have looked at quite a few websites for recipes…THIS SITE IS GREAT! Keep up the good work

  5. You had me at no bake! And peanut butter! And then you threw in brownies, and I was like–kill me now with awesome 🙂 These look fab!

  6. These brownie bites sound delicious! Love how easy they are to put together and you can’t beat the peanut butter and chocolate combo! They make the perfect snack!
