Savory Sunday: Peanut Butter Spoons

A quick post for your Sunday evening.

You may or may not know that I have a love for Peanut Butter. It's practically a food group on it's own in our house as my daughter loves it too. If you want to really make me happy, add chocolate to it, that is a match made in heaven. In fact I have an entire Pinterest Board called "Peanut Butter in my Belly" that is, mostly chocolate peanut butter recipes.

However sleep deprivation, three kids, school jobs, stuff, stuff, and more stuff means I don't always have time to bake all, or any, of those wonderful goodies.

Sometimes thought it's necessary to have a sweet peanut butter chocolate treat. You just need a little to take the craving edge of when you are dieting or it may be that time of the month wen you need a little extra chocolate. Whatever it is I have invented (or modified a basic principle) the perfect less than a minute to prep chocolate peanut butter snack.

Peanut Butter Spoons
1. Dip spoon into jar of peanut butter (I prefer crunchy) and scoop a heaping spoonful
2. Sprinkle, roll, dip, otherwise cover with one of the following:
  • mini chocolate chips
  • chocolate chips
  • M&M's
  • Any other kind of chocolate bits and pieces you may have around
3. Eat and be happy. 

Personally M&Ms have become my favorite, they really do make it  the perfect snack.
