|Peanut Butter Power Bites|
But today while I was cooking for a new EAT! client, my phone vibrated with 2 test messages within minutes of each other. Being that it was during school hours and both messages were from my daughters, I decided to take a look at them. The girls texted me saying how much they and their friends loved the Peanut Butter Power Bites I packed in their lunches. A friend of one of my daughter's (and a frequent dinner guest at our house) even stated that she would do anything to get a few more of the crunchy and chocolatey peanut butter treats.
I made a batch of 50 Peanut Butter Power Bites yesterday afternoon and there are about 15 left. It looks like it is about time to make some more.
