I’m so excited to share this recipe for White Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites just in time for Halloween. My incredibly helpful and talented friend, Nancy, told me about this recipe a month or so ago. Apparently, this is one of the most popular recipes in the Junior League of Birmingham Cookbook, “Tables of Content“, and I can see why. They are so easy, and they make a huge amount. The best part of all is that they freeze beautifully. These White Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites in this photo are actually a variation of a recipe. We omitted the marshmallows and used cocktail peanuts, and instead of spreading on wax paper, we made them into individual bites. Just be sure to stir in the M & M’s after the white chocolate has cooled slightly so they don’t melt. Enjoy these on Halloween, Christmas, any holiday or just for fun :).
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites
Makes 75 pieces
4 cups crisp rice cereal
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
4 cups (24 ounces) white chocolate morsels melted
1 cup m & m's
1. Combine the cereal, marshmallows, peanut butter, and peanuts in a large bowl, mixing well. Pour the white chocolate mixture and quickly mix to coat.
2. Spread the cereal mixture on a sheet of waxed paper and let stand until cool and firm. Break into small pieces and store in an airtight container.
Melt the white chocolate in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, or in the microwave on HIGH for two minutes.
