Peanut Butter Power Bites

Peanut Butter Power Bites
I am teased by my family that I don't need a cellphone.  More times than not, I miss their calls or fail to answer their text messages.  It is not that I am always ignoring them, but there are times I don't want to be so...accessible.

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.

I am sorry but these were a pain to make (stirring up this mess made my dogs very happy) how you got got 50 out of the recipe is beyond me you must have made them tiny.
