Quick and Easy Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

These no-bake little peanut balls are so easy to prepare that surely you will want to keep them in mind when that craving for peanut butter hits. Though I am the first to admit that there is nothing quite like the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, I wanted something somewhat healthier and this late night snack satisfied my craving in hardly anytime at all.

I don't have children, but if you do, this is an ideal and simple recipe to get your little ones interested in the idea of making homemade treats. Of course, everyone in the house, grownups and children alike, will enjoy these creamy, milky little bites.
