Peanut butter and chocolate is likely one of my favorite combinations, ever. You can probably tell by looking at the "sweet" page of the blog- peanut butter and chocolate mousse, peanut butter and chocolate blondies, peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes... I can't stop! These are easy to whip up, and are tiny- perfect for snacking. Also, they pair realllly well with wine ;)

Fat Freddy's Drop- Flashback

INGREDIENTS

½ cup almonds
½ cup salted peanuts
½ cup peanut butter
2 medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup rolled oats (I used certified GF)
½ tsp vanilla
1 cup dark chocolate chips or bars, chopped finely
1 tbsp coconut oil

INSTRUCTIONS

Add oats and dates to a food processor, pulse until oats are finely ground and well combined. Remove from processor, then add almonds and peanuts to the food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add peanut butter and vanilla to nut mixture and pulse until well combined. Add oats and blend until it forms a dough. Using a 1/4 tsp as a spoon, scoop small amounts of dough, roll into balls and place on a lined cookie sheet. Freeze for half an hour to an hour, until dough balls are frozen hard. In a pot, heat chocolate and coconut oil on low heat until melted. Turn heat off. Using a fork, roll each peanut butter ball in chocolate and tap on the side of the pot to get excess chocolate off. Place chocolate covered ball on a lined cookie sheet and place in freezer until firm. Once firm, transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until serving.
