Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites

If you are a fan of peanut butter cups and cheesecake then these are the perfect chocolate covered bites for you.  They are easy to make and nestle nicely in the freezer until you have a hankering for something sweet.   Or you wake up and decide that they would make a nice breakfast along with your herbal tea.  But that might just be me.   The Chief Taster and me haggled fiercely over the last one.  Tears, begging, bargaining, sobbing and bribery did him no good…

You could make these into balls by using a melon baller or your hands, but I decided to use an ice tray as I wanted a squared shape to make it easier to dip and cover the bites with chocolate.  Plus it had the advantage of being able to pop the shapes out too.   Any mould shape would work too.  I dipped mine in chocolate but you could have these without it if you wanted (although I’d ask “why??”).

Peanut Butter Bites


Course: Dessert
Servings: 12 Bites
Author: Angela Coleby
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (125g) Peanut butter unsweetened
  • 1 8oz (225g) Cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup (28g) Erythritol
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100g Dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Blend the peanut butter, erythritol, cream cheese and vanilla essence together. I used a hand blender but a sturdy arm and a wooden spoon would do it.

  2. Press a large teaspoon of the mixture into an ice tray or alternative, make a ball. If you make a ball shape, place them on a piece of parchment paper.

  3. Pop the ice tray/balls on parchment paper into the freezer for about an hour until they firm up.

  4. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water (bain marie) and add the coconut oil. Stir until melted and cool slightly.

  5. Take the peanut bites out of the freezer and dip each bite into the chocolate mixture and place on a tray lined with parchment paper. You may want to double dip the pieces in the chocolate.

  6. Place back into the freezer for at least 30 minutes until the chocolate has hardened. Keep stored in the freezer until you are ready to eat them.

  7. Eat and enjoy!

    Do you know what I could use instead of coconut oil? I’m allergic to coconut.

    What would be a good substitute for the erythritol? I’ve looked everywhere in my town and can’t find it.

    When you say ‘dark chocolate’, what do you mean?

      High in cocoa solids. I normally use anything from 75% above.

    Do you think Almond or Hazelnut butter would work as well as Peanut Butter? These look decadent and I think my guy would love them!

      Omg… Hazelnut butter! That would be amazing! I’m drooling at the thought of that! Definitely think you could use another nut butter. Let me know how it works out and feel free to taunt me with photos!
