Peanut Butter Bites

By April 22nd, 2019 Candy + Treats, Christmas, Food Gifts

Peanut Butter Bites candy are like peanut butter caramel chews. Easy to make candy that is great to make with the kids, and fun for gift giving. 

 

I grew up making candy with my mom, especially around Christmas. But there would be times we’d make taffy or honey candy to pull at other times of the year. She was good at it. Candy making can be tricky, with all its science and particulars.

I still like doing it, but I also like the easy route, like these no-cook peanuty chews. They take 30 minutes to make, and suddenly you feel like the corner candy shop and want to decorate the kitchen in pink and stripes.
Peanut Butter BitesEven if you can’t make candy like See’s or Fauchon, you can definitely make these.
Chewy and peanut-buttery, they melt in your mouth and taste milky and sweet. Kids will love helping roll ropes of the candy and cutting it into pieces.
