Do you want to hear a funny thing? Many people in my country consider peanut butter to be a dessert spread, like Nutella. It is even placed near Nutella in a dessert section in shops. The majority don’t even know what PB is and have never tried it in their lives. I am not even sure if I myself would be acquainted with this amazing food paste if not for the blog!

Well, but I am. And I am spreading the word about it to my friends and family as actively as I can. They get really surprised when I tell them that PB is actually… Healthy. It’s packed with goodness: healthy unsaturated fats, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and the list goes on and on. Plus it’s delicious even for those who hate sweets!

Nowadays, when I need to make dessert for guests, I’m trying to add at least something healthy inside. If it’s pudding I throw some chia inside, if dessert needs chocolate I use dark chocolate instead of milk and so on. Such a psychological trick calms me down a little bit. It’s like I am committing a sin but a better one, ha!

The No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls I made today are that kind of dessert. They contain some powdered sugar and butter but… On the other hand, we have peanut butter and dark chocolate! It’s way better than just make the balls out of, for example, the already mentioned Nutella. I already talked about the PB benefits but dark chocolate has some too. It’s packed with fiber, iron, magnesium, and others. I am good at justifying desserts, right?

    That is really interesting. I definitely don’t view peanut butter as being as indulgent as Nutella! We make a version of these in Ohio called buckeyes. Same basic recipe but leave the top uncovered to look like the nuts on a Buckeye tree.
